Seven years after the golden CD BAHAR (LM020), and three years after BAHAR LIVE, under the sky (LM035), Makis Ablianitis releases his new album.
KISMET, the fate that controls our lives or the fate that we make (?): a title that was not accidentally used, as Ablianitis writes at his dedication to his father.

This time Makis Ablianitis is travelling to internal landscapes: to the past, the memories, the emotions.
And as we travel from track to track our emotions change from melancholic to optimistic, from down-tempo to up-tempo.

Makis Ablianitis - "BAHAR"

Bahar

Featuring: Hariprasad Chaurasia, Dragan Dautovski, Haig Yazdjian, Petros Tabouris, Vangelis Karipis, Nikos Kapilidis, Tanya Nikoloudi.

Vocals: Manolis Lidakis
Lyrics: Makis Ablianitis - Magda Papadaki

LM020-2 (December 2000)

“Bahar” is the ultimate musical expression of contemporary multicultural identity. It is a musical journey that begins from the soil of the Balkans, opens up into the big blue of the Mediterranean, to end in the trails of the East. The inspired compositions are by Makis Ablianitis. It is music shed by the sun of the Mediterranean.

The deep melodic voice of Manolis Lidakis, graces the two songs of the album. Poetic lyrics performed by the best Greek male vocalist.

The album also features four very prominent artists:
Hariprasad Chaurasia, the greatest Indian flutist, internationally acclaimed, known for his collaborations with Ravi Shankar, John McLaughlin and Jan Garbarek, among others Dragan Dautovski, the kaval and gajda virtuoso from FYROM Haig Yazdjian, the great Armenian oud player Petros Tabouris, the Greek canun virtuoso

In times when the borders of nations are falling and a new cultural identity is emerging, “BAHAR” takes on the role of the sound sample of this new culture. A sound that respects the diversities and individualities of the cultures that comprise this album, but at the same time is the median that presents us with a contemporary musical direction.
