Iolkos - Yorgos Foudoulis

An ancient Greek city, built on the site of current Volos, in the deepest recess of the gulf of Pagasitikos, starting point of a fabulous travel. King Pelias, Jason who appeared wearing a single sandal and gave meaning to an old oracle, the golden fleece, legendary "Argo" and its long journey to Kolhis, with heroes from all over Greece as a crew, heroes like Hercules, Dioskouri, Pileas, Orpheus, Asclepius and many others, are all parts of the canvas of the famous myth of the Argonautic Expedition.
This same city, which has in the long past inspired epic writers and poets, is now after many centuries becoming the starting point of another journey, musical this time. The music of the collection "Iolkos" bears deep influences by the myth and the present as well, since it was actually created in it.
In many of its parts, situations and sentiments are described, sounds from nature and its elements are transported, the human awe of the Divine and Fate is expressed. It's a cluster of pictures, imaginary and real, a game of primaeval memory and experience, an internal monologue seeking to evolve, to grow into a dialogue with each listener.
