Mikis Theodorakis Death – Obituary News : Famed Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis dies at 96 .
We are sad to report that Famed Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis dies at 96, according to the following statements posted on social media on September 2. 2021.
Theodorakis’s prolific career, which started at age 17, produced a hugely varied body of work that ranged from somber symphonies and an anthem for the Palestinian Liberation Organization to popular television and the film scores for, Serpico, and, Zorba the Greek. But the towering man with trademark worker suits, hoarse voice and wavy hair also is remembered by Greeks for his stubborn opposition to post-war regimes that persecuted him and outlawed his music.

He wears the Palestinian kofeya
There’s plenty of evidence online that Arafat got Mikis Theodorakis to write A National Hymn of Palestine, when he visited Greece in 1981
It’s also quite clear that this anthem, which online evidence says had lyrics by Mahmoud Darwish and was presented in Algiers in 1988, is not the current national anthem of the Palestinian Authority.Tamtoom Adi wrote
