Maria Farantouri has been referred to as the "Joan Baez of the Mediterranean". She has had huge successes with her innumerable concerts all over the world and has left a strong impression everywhere. Born in 1947, music and singing have always been a passion for Maria. After early performances with a choir, her unique alto voice fast turned her into a celebrated soloist. She was only 16 years old when Mikis Theodorakis discovered her, and they developed an artistic and personal friendship which is still flourishing and which has been crowned by numerous records, concert tours and musical projects.

Forced into exile after the military coup in April 1967, Maria became a symbol of resistance and democracy through the hundreds of concerts she gave with songs by Mikis Theodorakis, meanwhile a prisoner of the junta. After her return to Greece in 1974, Maria Farantouri embarked on a number of projects together with some very different artists, which extended and varied her musical repertoire (including John Williams, Zülfü Livaneli, Leo Brower, Lucio Dalla and Maria del Mar Bonet).

"Way Home" ( σπίτι τρόπων ), the song featured on this album, was awarded with the Prize of the German CD Critics (Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik) in the summer of 2007.
