1993 - IN THE MARKETPLACE OF THE WORLD [STIN AGORA TOU KOSMOU]
Greek music in the early ‘90s was ready to move from the confusion of the ‘80s to something more “real” and “handmade”. Alkinoos’ first album as a singer, with songs written by Nikos Zoudiaris, was a smash hit. Despite the doubts of the record company, who released it under the pressure of Demetra Galani (the famous singer became the album’s executive producer), the album went platinum in no time. This unpredictable success gave Alkinoos a two-year depression, but also the opportunity to “design” his artistic life without compromises, deadlines, PR, managers or consultants. Songs from this album, like “In the marketplace of Al Khalil” and “Zinonos”, became classic.
