Aphrodite’s Child – Ciccada

Random Patchwork
The idea is, picking a random track, and use that track as a starting point. Then let the post flow from there.

The random track: Ena Pedi Ston Kathrefti – A Child. (no video sorry)
The track is from an album by Ciccada, A Child In The Mirror (2010)

Ciccada is a Progressive Folk Rock band, formed in 2005 in Athens Greece, their signature sound is high pitch female vocal, flute, and a complex combination of folk and rock elements. Stylistically borrowing from folk, classic, and from 70’s progressive bands, Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant, Camel, ect.

This Track is from the same album.:

Greece music makes me think of “Nana Mouskouri” and pop singer “Demis Roussos”, and come to think of it Demis Roussos, also came to fame in progressive/psychedelic rock, with “Aphrodite’s Child” formed in 1967, and debuting as early as 1968, with the strange but wonderful 60’s pop album “End of the World”. Enjoy this live take, Its Kitsch, Its cult, Its just adorable. Got a big smile on my face posting this one. Just looking at the guests dancing it is a blast.

Aphrodite’s Child is best known for their last album, the epic and ambitious doublet album 666, from 1972, released after the band had already split.
The album was much more psychedelic and experimental than the previous pop oriented albums, essentially a project created mainly by the keyboard player Vangelis

Vangelis and Roussos started successful solo careers after Aphrodite’s Child.
