Music, lyrics, performance: Ioannidis Nikolaos


The visionary

Dreams are born from his music,

worlds fall from his songs.

He is walking his own path,

with melodies, rhymes

barriers to break,

bridges to make.

A life spent in searching,

a soul meant to dream

visions of a world sane and free.

In times of confusion,

 he leaves his trace.
