The independent Greek record label Diktio was established in early 90’s.
Its first release was an unexpected and unique success. It was Michalis Nikoloudis’ Aeolia, which was released in 1995 and made an impact on Greek discography, starting a dialogue between Aegean and East Mediterranean music traditions.

This makes us believe that no matter how manipulated the situation concerning art and culture in general is these days, there will always be grave reasons for worthy new releases and artists to emerge, even at a cost in maximizing profit.
The relationship of Diktio with music proceedings remains amateurish in the sense that, whereas we don’t decline professionalism, we remain art lovers. Diktio is based on the premise that knowledge and expertise are the most creative incentives.
Therefore, in spite of the circumstances, we in Diktio continue with “music you can listen to,” with music we love, hoping hat you will love it to.
