Review: Blues for the White Nigger by MK-O.


A big ‘THANK YOU’, my friend
from both Oannes and me

By mk-o

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.
