My son participates in a choir of our local music school in Kallithea (GR), and they had a performance lately in the local theater, which was really wonderful. The more I got shocked as I heard afterwards that all the teachers of the school didn't get paid for 6 months, for teaching there and for the sake of the children they continued their work and made such a wonderful performance. Again a proof that musicians are good people, the one's that help, that care and that try to cheer up the others!
Is there a way we could help them?

We Care Adriano&Paulina
I often sail in fantasy
Across the isles in the Aegean sea
Like Ulysses on his famous Odyssey
And visit Athens for to be
a part of ancient history
Where Acropolis resides so gracefully
But recent years appear to be
A true Sophoclean tragedy
with crisis having struck so violently
We care about the culture
we care about the people
we care about what's right or wrong
together we stand strong
and we can help them coping
not to despair but hoping
that soon the sun will rise to
a new and brighter day
The roots of the Olympic thought
to honor Zeus and all the gods
Then gods were more like men and men like gods
Here Socrates did drink the cup
presented to him by the mob
the art of reasoning is what he taught
The thesis of Pythagoras
2000 years ago it was
his thought still indispensible to us
The concept of democracy
invented here primarily
a legacy for all humanity

Thank you to Ummagma for their generous contribution to Music care about Greece with their song "Live and Let Die"! To be downloaded after donation from https://vimeo.com/51534033
Ummagma is a popular music group that recently emerged on the music scene with the release of two full-length debut albums ("Ummagma" and "Antigravity"). They seemingly number among the new indie music "˜darlings', having found a good following in numerous countries with their delicious mix of dreampop, post-rock, post-punk, ambient/ethereal, space rock and progressive/art rock.
Canadian-Ukrainian duo Alexander Kretov and Shauna McLarnon are known for a musical style that is unique, while still invoking associations with numerous groups from the early 4AD period, especially Cocteau Twins, in addition to Blonde Redhead, Stereolab, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, AIR, Sigur Ros, Arcade Fire, Michael Brook and Lush.
This Ummagma video, created by Roma Kalitkin of Moscow, has been contributed for the "Care About Greece" project, which is intended to help raise funds to benefit the poorest among Greek citizens, devastated by the current economic crisis.
You can find more Ummagma on the internet at:
WE CARE ABOUT GREECE
Due to the recent financial crisis in Greece, many Greeks have found them selves in dire times with many becoming unemployed and losing their houses and security. The healthcare and social / welfare infrastructure is collapsing with the situation predicted to become much worse in the future as more government austerity measures kick-in. The Greek people have experienced a catastrophic fall in their standard of living that is hard for most of us in the West to imagine. For many ordinary Greeks, survival is becoming a critical issue with increasing numbers becoming destitute and living on the streets. And remember, these are people who enjoyed the same level of security, income and lifestyle as we do. Just imagine who we'd feel if this was happening to us!
Over the past months I have become increasingly alarmed to experience Greek society slowly collapsing. This is both terrifying and very sad.
"My name is Ariadne WesterKamp. I am a Greek citizen. I am one of the lucky ones; so far. I still have a job, a house and money to buy food "“ for the time being at least.
The only treasure I have is my love for and my abilities in music.
I realised that I had to do something about this situation; do whatever I could using my contacts to help out in some way.
It occurred to me that I had many contacts on Twitter who were musicians. Gradually, the idea of producing several musical pieces and/or songs on the theme "Greece" as a fundraising project began to form. Following on from this I began to ask my fellow musicians on Twitter if they would be willing to donate their time and skills to the project to help me produce a range of music in different genres."
There are several organizations within Greece that are battling against huge challenges to try and bring some small relief to this situation.
The Greek Orthodox Church with their wide network of churches in both rural and urban districts are feeding millions of people by supplying one warm meal each day. Currently, each church feeds around 400 people but the demand is still rising and the Church is finding it increasingly difficult to support this work.
Other partners for collaboration are "EPAM-Hellas", an originally more political organization of solidary citizens that provides essential goods and food to poor families along with offering medical help for free (medical services and supplies are collapsing fast in Greece). "Doctors of the World" are increasingly not only helping immigrants but Greeks as well.
"To hamogelo tou paidiou" (= the smile of the child) that supports children and their family financially, psychologically and medically,- "Doctors without borders", who give medical help free of charge for anyone, and "Theophilos", a charity organization that is specialized to support big families who -especially in the villages- live in dire circumstances. http://theophilos.gr
It is our aim to fundraise â‚¬10.000 every month for food and medical help. This is an ambitious goal and we need all the help and support we can get!
From September 2012 every month we'll release a musical piece, available on youtube ( https://www.youtube.com/user/Musiccareaboutgreece
) that will be promoted online on facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/groups/WeCareAboutGreece/
) to fundraise for the benefit of the poorest Greek people. The money will go directly to the organizations mentioned above and will be used for food and medical care.
As a reward one can download the songs from our Vimeo website: https://vimeo.com/user13625348
Of course it is also possible to go straight to the websites of these organizations and donate!
We thank all the musicians and other artists and organizers for their time and efforts to make this t
