Villagers of Ioannina City - "Through Space and Time" (Alive in Athens 2020)

Welcome, our friends, here comes the sun,
breath out, we are finally reborn.
Time flies in circles and rerun, so fast,
but time is an illusion and it bends,
and now it makes much more sense.
We've experienced strange days, but you have to remember
life is just a ride.
Dance and sing along with us tonight, spring has arrived.
Look at the horizon, the sun is reaching out,
from the mountains to wash away the fear.
No fear no more, stand up straight, together,
with all the wanderers of mind and the dreamers of a different world.
If we stand together as one we will overcome,
we will finally be free, sailing to an open sea
we will rise to the sky like a sparkle in the night.
Our friends, welcome!


Villagers of Ioannina City - Through Space and Time
Διαθέσιμη -μέσω YouTube- η υπέροχη εμφάνιση των Villagers of Ioannina City στο Ολυμπιακό Συγκρότημα Φαλήρου (αίθουσα Ταε Κβο Ντο) στις 15 Φεβρουαρίου 2020. Καθηλωτική συναυλία. Οι VIC μας έρχονται (όπως μαρτυράει και τ' όνομά τους) από τα Ιωάννινα και "παντρεύουν" με εξαιρετικό τρόπο την πολυφωνική μουσική της Ηπείρου με το heavy rock.

Το 2010 συστήθηκαν δισκογραφικά στο κοινό κυκλοφορώντας ένα promo έξι τραγουδιών. Τον Απρίλιο του 2014 "έσκασε σαν βόμβα" στην εγχώρια μουσική σκηνή το ντεμπούτο τους "Riza" για να το διαδεχθεί (τον Νοέμβριο του ίδιου έτους) το ep "Zvara / Karakolia", ενώ το πλέον πρόσφατο δισκογραφικό τους πόνημα είναι το full length album "Age of Aquarius".

Η μπάντα μας συστήνεται (σε όσους δεν την γνωρίζουν ακόμη) κάπως έτσι:

«Villagers of Ioannina City, one of the leading Greek heavy rock bands, comes from the mountains of Epirus. They are deeply influenced by Greek nature and cosmic phenomena and infuse their unique brand of heavy psychedelic rock with folk instruments such as bagpipes, flutes and, didgeridoo.»
