Odes is the title of an album of Greek Folk Songs by Vangelis and Irene Papas. All of the songs are traditional, except two which are original compositions by Vangelis.


Les 40 Braves describes 40 young men on their way to conquer the city of Tripolitsa during the Greek War of Independence.

Neranzoula is a description of a small orange tree, which is analogous for the state of Greece during Ottoman occupation.

Les Kolokotronei were one of the most important Greek families in the Greek Resistance and Independence movements.

Lamento is sung by the mother who has lost her son, a fisherman. The song describes her pain at her loss.

Menousis describes the events of a character in folk tale (who was probably a real individual), who in his drunkeness kills his wife because of her supposed infidelity.
