From Spotlight to Seaside: Greek Singer Melina Aslanidou’s Move to Crete
Affinity for Chania, Crete
Renowned Greek singer Melina Aslanidou, in a recent interview on the show “Studio 4”, expressed her deep affection for Chania, Crete, and declared it her second homeland. Aslanidou’s decision to relocate to Crete sparked questions about her career’s future and the possibility of her fading from the music scene. However, the singer confidently addressed these concerns, stating that she never feared being forgotten as an artist.
Relocation within Greece
Aslanidou emphasized the fact that her move was within Greece and not to a distant country like Norway. She reiterated that her decision to permanently reside in Crete would not impact her musical career in a negative way. The singer highlighted the rich music scene in Crete, teeming with countless artists, as one of the reasons she was attracted to the region. To Aslanidou, her move to Crete is not just about changing her physical address, but also about feeling a deep connection to the place.
Visiting Athens: Only for Essentials
While the singer admitted to travelling to Athens for her essential needs, she made it clear that her heart now resides in Crete. As a self-employed artist, Aslanidou expressed the luxury of not being tied down to an office, which allows her the freedom to live where she pleases. She cited the example of Nikos Papazoglou, a famous Greek singer who lived in Thessaloniki, as an instance of artists choosing to live where they feel most inspired and comfortable.
Crete: A Source of Inspiration
Not only does Aslanidou believe her move to Crete won’t negatively impact her career, she also sees potential benefits. The singer hinted at the possibility of drawing inspiration from her new surroundings – the sea and the vibrant local music scene. She expressed excitement at the thought of creating her next perfect song by the seaside in her new home on Crete.
Aslanidou’s decision to move to Crete is a testament to her love for the region and her confidence in her music. Her belief that the move will not be detrimental to her career, but rather provide a fresh source of inspiration, showcases her commitment to her craft. Despite concerns about her potential fading from the music scene, Aslanidou remains optimistic about her future, proving that for her, music is not bound by geography.
