Nana Mouskouri, returns to Toronto with Forever Young, a tour that has earned its title and brings us many of her most beautiful songs including Song for Liberty, The White Rose of Athens, Soleil Soleil, and more.
The holder of 300 gold and platinum discs that have punctuated her glorious career, totalling 350 million albums sold and 1600 tracks in 19 different languages. In 2018, Nana will celebrate her 60 years of success in music, just recording her 134th album, and we haven't heard the last of her yet, for more languages are goading her enthusiasm and curiosity.
The Forever Young Tour is a new journey, going back to the beginnings through the waters of youth. Dreams do not wither — neither do songs. They are bubbles of eternity embracing our memories, the soundtrack of our lives. Nana Mouskouri devotes her inspiration to the artists she's met along the road, 60 years of music and fantastic friendships: Michel Legrand, Quincy Jones, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Bobby Scott, Simon & Garfunkel, Serge Gainsbourg, Pierre Delanoë, Claude Lemesle, Mark Knopfler, Tony Visconti, Manos Hadjidakis, Nikos Gatsos, Serge Lama, Francis Cabrel… and so many others from here and there, from yesterday and today. «No matter what you want to achieve, all that counts is the way to get there. Why, how and with whom you travel!» she claims. A progress in love and music, a way to learn and understand, a course to be served and honoured.
