All Music Guide - Cary Ginell
Following the pattern of his album duet with Lena Horne on songs from Porgy and Bess, Harry Belafonte teamed up this time with Greek chanteuse Nana Mouskouri.

The songs are sung in Greek with Mouskouri's naturally coming off as more authentic. Most of the tunes were written by the prolific Greek songwriter Manos Hadjidakis, writer of "Never on Sunday."

    Incredibly Beautiful Harmonies:

    This is the most beautiful Greek music I've ever heard! Belafonte and Mouskouri create incredibly beautiful harmonies, their individual songs are also wonderful. A nice blend of romantic ballads and lively Greek toe-tappers. This is the best music find I've had in years, thanks to recommendation by my Greek Aunt Georgia who attended one of their concerts in the 60's.
