These songs by Mikis Theodorakis, Stavros Xarhakos, Yannis Markopoulos and others inspired and mobilized generations of people in Greece and abroad against authoritarianism. On the 50th anniversary of the most important resistance moment during the 7-year dictatorship, we remember the soundtrack of the ’60s and ’70s generation.
