'Stagona01' is the debut album of Thanos Saringelos + the Qualia. It was composed and recorded between 2014 and 2017 and released in 2018. The lyrics and the whole idea of the album deal with the problematic nature of the mind and the emotions that this fact triggers. The lyrics and the concept were created by Thanos Saringelos.
Its name 'stagona01' means 'the first drop', and it came from the idea that all released music is a huge ocean in which the new artists throw their personal drop of music. If it happens to be a true and unique deposit, this drop could have a value and add up to the content of the ocean. Time is the judge of that. If it does not, the artist himself should be the first one to remove it.
This is our first drop.
