Greece - Lianohortaroudia

At last ... but not least... we proudly present our song for Schoolovision 2018 to you. 
It is called: Lianohortaroudia.... a difficult Greek word to say... that means 'The fields'.
The song is a remix by a Greek band that is called Koza Mostra. 
They combined the traditional Greek song from Evros area
with their rock rhythm and lyrics. 
It talks about the Greek culture and tradition through the eons and teaches 
the new generation that traditional music can make you rock too!!!
And here are the lyrics for you to sing with us.....

 Born in Greece…Wandered through time…
Through the eons…By the immigrants danced
Can you feel it…It’s the sound of the land
Can you hear it…It’s the voice of our heart

Do sta lia ki amán amán
Do sta Lianoxortaroudia
Do sta Lianoxortaroudia
Ti tranós chorós tha génei

Anyone sees me…anyone hears me
I’m dancing with you till I fall…you know
The sound that heals me, fire that burns me
Is leading the sound in my soul…hey y’all

I’m tracking the demons that lie between us
Why don’t you help me to dance instead of
Thinking the reasons and twice the treasons
You’ve suffered in land we stand

San gaïtá ki amán amán
San gaïtáni tha paaínei
San gaïtánitha paaínei
Pénte pérdikes petoúsan


  1. Wow! I can't think of another rock entry that we've had over the years, but by goodness, we've certainly had one now!!
    And what an entry! I feel like I should grow my hair and start head-banging like some of my friends did when we were (a little) younger 😉
    As my hair is so short these days, maybe Steffen wants to be the rock n roller?
    A great, and diverse (from the norm) entry!
    Well done Elena and team, and good luck from Scotland!

    1. Thanks Michael. Short or long hair you can still rock...I am sure. Thanks for the good words. Good luck to you too.

  3. Well I say like Michael we certainly have a wonderful rock entry here, I began to dance while listening :-). Good work kids.
