I had the pleasure of collaborating with Greek singer-song writer and composer Iordanis Sidiropoulos.
IorDanis composed a brand new piece of music based on one of my paintings called Shahmaran which is the name of an ancient Persian Goddess.
Iordanis Sidiropoulos - Shahmaran
Shahmaran, or the ‘snake goddess’ is considered to be the keeper of wisdom. The term consists of Shah (Iranian Ruler) and Maran (snakes). Shahmaran can be found within the book of ‘One Thousand and One Nights’. Some believe her image can protect against bad events. The snake is a symbol of water and in Persian mythology it is believed that the snake is a master of storm clouds. They dwell within the seas and in times of lightening, they guide the rain to earth and cause fertility. In this piece, I use Shahmaran to relay a symbol of source energy, rain and fertility. The fish (sustained by the ocean) is subject to Shahmaran yet is depicted as honouring the bringer of fertility. Nasrin
Iordanis is a very talented artist. He has collaborated with a variety of greek artists and He has released four solo albums.
As The Leaves Fall
iordAnis - Ιορδάνης Σιδηρόπουλος
The first piano album, dedicated to the beauty and importance of nature.
As the leaves fall was released on the 23rd of July. There is a deeper reason for that specific release date as it was the same date in 2018 when catastrophic wildfires in central Greece led to the loss of 100 people’s lives.
Τα παιδικά μου ρούχα / My Childish Clothes
Ψάχνω στο φως / Searching into the light
This is the second solo album of iordAnis including the Greek Rock legend Vasilis Papakonstantinou & the famous modern singer Rita Antonopoulou. All songs & lyrics are written by iordAnis except the 5th song´s poetry that is written by Demosthenes Zavitsanos from Lefkada island.
