Manos Hadjidakis, dedicates a tribute to the greek composers of "rebetika" songs that expressed the atmosphere of 1945, immediately after the end of WWII, when Greece entered in a tragic internal civil war. The album was released in 1961 and contains 14 songs selected by Hadjidakis and arranged for small popular orchestra. For the great composer, these beautiful songs, immerged like "lilacs from the dead land" of a tortured and deserted country. Historical album with the magic touch of a musical genious and a wonderful cover by the greek painter Yiannis Tsarouhis.
