What brings us close must keep us separated
Virtual eremites in intensive care
What should be felt like the saddest of derogations
We celebrate like heavensent

Visibility was never a big issue
Men of power are nowhere to be seen
White  niggers try, white niggers try
To make their path to history’s screen

White nigger fell in love with imperfection
White nigger says: no need to fight or change
The place is here, the time is now for taking chances
Bring the story on the front page.

Our memories lost, like useless information
Exchanging flashes, like stars in frozen space
Seems like wakin’ up, seems like wakin’ up  
Words against reason, stars with no name…

Out of this field
Free from this strain
In quest of healing
Washed by the sun again

Hold back this scream
Release this pain
Embrace this feeling
and don’t come back again

MK-O is Marina Kanavaki & Oannes The acquaintance of the two musicians in 2000, led to a fruitful collaboration. The first outcome of this was the rearranged version of Marina’s first album “Pote & Tipota” , in 2004 . Today, as a duet [MK-O], are working on a series of albums, first of which was OVATION, their debut album, released in December 2006 by Hitch-Hyke. The multitude of musical influences and the broad working field creates an adventurous listening, hard to categorize. Extended instrumental arrangements coexist with lyrical songs. Rock, classical, techno, psychedelia, industrial, acoustic, electric and electronic instruments as well as a palette of samples varying from from Cesar Franck to Son House, Pink Floyd and Ministry, give a brief idea of the sound of this album. Ovation has been welcomed enthusiastically by the greek press & audience. Their second 2CD album UNREEL was released October 13th 2008 by Hitch Hyke. BLUES FOR THE WHITE NIGGER is their third album, released April 2011 by Puzzlemusik. 4th album, ΑΙΘΕΡΑΣ [Ether] was released March 2015.
