Vasilis Papakonstantinou was born in a village in Arcadia in 1950 and in 1957 his large family moved to Athens. His adolescence was indeed marked by the musical and social treads of the 1960s: Mikis Theodorakis, protest rock, international peace and liberation movements, and being that Greece was trying to quickly heal the wounds of the Greek Civil War. The Left pursued to shelter and to give a perspective to the shattered disappointment by providing a sensitive and claiming culture. Vasilis Papakonstantinou became a follower without ever becoming a member of a leftist party. In 1973, after having served for a period of time within the Hellenic Army, fulfilling his national service obligations, he moved to West Germany and settled in Munich. There he participated in anti-dictatorial movement organisations , campaigning against the Greek military junta of 1967-1974 and singing in places where Greek students and immigrants would be in attendance. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasilis_...
