George Dalaras, Agrigento.VIDEO
This video is taken from a tv show called “Avlea” broadcasted christmas time 1994.
I want to thank my dear friend Yiannis from Greece who provided me with this rare DVD show.
I also want to thank Mr Angelo Raphael our Greek mentor in Israel for his endless assistance and support for the translation of this song and so many other songs.

Lyrics: Giorgos Zikas
Performance: Giorgos Dalaras
Album: Kalos Tous-Welcome ,1994
The love flees, hides under the snow
Runs to survive the fires
The fires that haunt it for years
Are they ours, foreign or old ?
And they leave us stranded
In ruined streets
As castaways in the wrath of burning
Humanity’s tenacity for years long
Crusts and opens deeper wounds
In Agrigento I was deviously rejected
In Syracuse are stealing hearts.
*Is a city on the southern coast of Sicily, Italy.It is renowned as Greek ancient colony Akragas built 6th century BC.The melodie of the region is reflected in the song.
