Margarita-Aspasia Theodorakis


…is born in Paris on November 30, 1958. She is the first child of Mikis Theodorakis and his wife Myrto Altinoglou. Margarita followed the family on all movements in Greece and abroad and lived a life in experiencing intensely all the events that shaped the life and work of Mikis Theodorakis. She is responsible for the Popular Orchestra “Mikis Theodorakis” (MTorchestra), for “Romanos Music Publishers”, and for all activities around and of the work of her father. She has four sons.

On the Cretan Mikis Theodorakis website you can read the words, that have been spoken by Margarita Theodorakis, and expressing what has been and is the impact of being the daughter of Mikis Theodorakis, in a very very touching way. You can find it here.

Song: I Margarita i Margaro                                                                                                       In my TheodorakisFriends channel I uploaded my video for Margarita.                            Music in this video:
Title: I Margarita i Margaro
Composer: Mikis Theodorakis
Singer: Grigoris Bithikotsis


Translated lyrics ( English):

Margarita, Margaro!
Little dove in the sky,
In your two eyes I see heaven
I see the twinkling of the stars.

Your mother she is crazy
She’s locked you in, you’re on your own.
When I want to come to your room
You throw me down a rope of silk
And locked in together, night looks in on us,
So do the stars and then the dawn.

Margarita, Margaro!
Little boat on Saronic sea,
O my Saronic sea, O give me little waves,
Give me gentle breeze and give me the open sea!

Your mother she is crazy,
She’s locked you in, you’re on your own.
When I want to come to your room
You throw me down a rope of silk,
And locked in together, night looks in on us,
So do the stars and then the dawn.

Margarita, Margaro
Little tree in Botaniko!
Take the tram when you see nightfall
The hours go by, I’m falling, I feel faint.

My mother she is crazy
And she locked me in, I’m on my own.
When I want you to come to my room
I throw you down a rope of silk,
And locked in together, night looks in on us,
So do the stars and then the dawn.

About TheodorakisFriends

"TheodorakisFriends" is the name of my YouTube-channel and was set up in 2009, with the intention to collect all exisiting quality videos about and with Mikis Theodorakis' work as a composer, and also with and about his activities in politics and social life, from the far past till the present. In the meantime many thousands of videos are organized in more than 207 playlists. In 2010 the groups on YouTube disappeared from the channels, also my group Friends of Mikis, with many posts. To be able to continue with publishing mostly amazing information about and from Mikis Theodorakis, became the reason for creating the blog TheodorakisFriends: http://theodorakisfriends.com/
