Naam: P.L. – Greece 

Dearest Margot,

Thanks so much for your music!!!! You guys are SOOOOOOO GOOD! I’m so glad I had the chance to listen to your songs! The only better thing that can happen now is for me to meet you in person!...

After listening to your music, it just so happened, I wrote these two songs… or at least I think someone could make them songs… for you!... I would be honored if you liked them and you use them after you find some music, that is. Of course, if you don’t like them and you think are no good at all, you wouldn’t hurt my feelings… I’m not a professional anyway… that figures!!!!!

I heard I could see you on T.V., soon. I’ll be waiting.

My best wishes, to you and your friends.

Looking forward to hearing from you, soon.

Unfortunately I have never heard of your group Palio-Paréa, but I got this tip from Greece. A Greek friend who witnessed one of your concerts in Greece with her husband mailed me: “…….the audience was very excited and the absolutely stole the impressions……….”

Whenever Greeks write this, it must be good!!

I was in Greek moods for a bit, which is easy when browsing your site. Listened to some music and discovered that the song halili sou, halili touches me again, beautiful. August is also very beautiful. All the best.

Loved your concert at the Zuiderpark open air theatre!! We are true Greece lovers and have many CDs by Xaris Alexiou, but your voice Margot is just like hers! We’ll be coming to your concerts more often!!

Are you having a gig in Zutphen on Friday? I can’t find it in your schedule but I heard about it in The Hague, 23 July.

I really enjoyed your concert at the Zuiderpark open air theatre in The Hague last night. Unfortunately, I haven’t been to Greece for a couple of years now, but last night took me right back! Great fun and very good.

We have been going to Greece every year since 1986 and we adore Greek language and music. I never thought Dutchmen would be able to express it so beautifully. Our compliments!

What a lovely night in Nijmegen on June 19. No sad parting at all. Had never heard of you, shame, shame. Just in time to discover Mattie. I was gobsmacked. Fortunately we can continue to enjoy Margot and Loek. I’ve immediately ordered your last two CDs, for listening just once is not enough.
Efcharisto, Leo.

Hi Palio Parea and fans, I’d like to let you know that I had a great night with your band in Trianon/Nijmegen on 19 June. Despite it being Matti’s farewell evening, there was a very special and warm atmosphere in the house. Thanks to your fantastic music and singing. CHAPEAU!!
Bye, Anja

Hi Margot and Loek, I’d like to thank you for the lovely time and the wonderful music on Poros. I tried to register for the newsletter but somehow it doesn’t work. Maybe this way.

I've just seen you on Greek T.V. I want to find out more about you and I will. I feel honoured that people like you with a different language and a different culture sing our Greek songs. What you are doing is appreciated. I am touched. THANK YOU!

Dear Palio Parea, I went to your show at the Zaan theatre. I thought you were very good, perhaps because I love Greek music anyway. I had a really good time and bought your CD Palio Parea Live Club Chara! An absolute gem, worth every euro. Shame about the small print, would have liked to be able to read the information properly. Good luck and love

Dear friends. For that’s what it feels like after your concert at the Effenaar last night: among old friends. What a fantastic performance you gave…your passion and your rapport, it’s a great joy to have been there. Thanks so much. On the 27th of June next year I’ll be 60 and I saw you’ll be performing in the park at the Euromast, perhaps I can make a celebration out of it. I wish you lots of inspiration.

I first got to know your music through the Tros theatre café TV programme and thoroughly enjoyed it, the genuine pure Greek atmosphere. Now I’m wondering how I can get your CDs for I haven’t been able to find any in the shops. Please let me know.
Thanks very much and the best of luck, Marion van den Akker

Hi, Palio Parea. What a great concert you gave in Caf Trianon in Nijmegen last Sunday 13 June 04.! The music was wonderful, a perfect selection from your beautiful and professional repertoire. The ensemble between bouzouki players Loek and your guest musician Eleftheris was also extremely convincing! Thanks to Margot’s temperamental singing and performance, the atmosphere was fantastic. Thanks very much and see you at the next concert.

Part 1
Hi Palio Parea. What a FANTASTIC site you have! Especially the music you can listen to. I’ve been to a few of your concerts when you were in Amstelveen. You deserve a compliment for your Greek pronunciation. Much better than a few years ago. I married a Greek and have lived in Greece for 25 years, now we’re living in NL half the time and in GR the other half.

Part 2
Maybe you’ll remember me. In Amstelveen I showed you a CD with the song s'Agapo yiati eisai oraia ise orea, with beautiful instrumentals and lyrics that would fit your repertoire very well. I’m hoping you’ll record it on CD some time. Let me wish you all the best with your band and see you again in Amstelveen.

We went to the Kleine Komedie last night and we loved it again! I saw you unplugged last year at the Pompoen Theatre (car-free Sunday) and wondered whether your amplified music would be disappointing (less of course, less than you sometimes find it in Greek taverns). But it wasn’t. So our compliments to the sound engineer too! We’ll come again.

Hi Margot, Loek, Matti and Carel
As a true “groupie” I’ve been to a number of your concerts lately, but your performance in Spijkenisse last night was exceptionally OK. The start was a bit bumpy due to the technicians, but then you did manage to shake, rattle and roll those sceptical Greeks: bravo…Keep it up and I’ll come and listen as often as I can.
Cheretismos, Gerard

Dear Palio-Par. We went to your concert in Paradox in Tilburg though we’d never ever heard about you. We knew nothing more than what the newspaper had told us about you. We were very impressed during and after the concert. Beautiful songs, excellent singing and music. Keep it up!!! I ordered your Stin Perron CD for my girlfriend’s birthday (through Girotel).
Bye, Hans

Enjoyed your performance at the Plein theatre last night. Unfortunately Huisen is sold out, both on 15 and on 16 January. Let me know when there’s another concert and dinner. Happy Christmas and best of luck in 2003.
