Lyrics are about the devastating political and financial situation in Greece_ David August - Patria feat. Sissi Rada_ up the Greeks!


Last year I met Sissi Rada. She was singing in Greek and playing the harp when I first listened to her. 


I asked her to record something with me as I wanted to use her voice for my music. We sat down, I played the harmonies on my Prophet 5 and she would jam over it. Her first take is the take you're listening to. Back then I was in my bedroom studio. We had noises from the street, roommates the next door, but the take captured the magic and the spontaneous moment of just doing music. I didn't want to record it again.


Her lyrics are about the devastating political and financial situation in Greece and I tried - as much as I could do - to reflect that with my music.


The lyrics
Η πατρίδα μου 

μαραμένη
χώματα και θάλασσα και φρούτα 
Στοιβαγμένη
σ' αεροπορικά εισιτήρια 
Μαζικά συλλαλητήρια 
Αέρα σου στρωσα και λούσα

Η πατρίδα μου 

αμβλώνεται και κουράζει
με αλλονών τύπους 
χώματα και θάλασσα και φρούτα 
συμφέρει.
