21 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE & CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE ARTS, CULTURE
AND PUBLIC RADIO BROADCASTING!


Since 1993 AKTINA Productions, Inc., excells in the arts, culture and public service radio broadcasting.  As we reflect back during our long vibrant and productive presence in New York's cultural scene, we are extremely proud and honored to have earned the great respect and support of the public we serve, comprised by Greek Americans and members of the general audience.  AKTINA prides itself for producing memorable live performances and programs celebrating Greek and Cypriot culture and for bringing you the highly rated progams AKTINA FM on WNYE 91.5FM and AKTINA TV on WNYE Ch. 25 and on Ocean TV20.

AKTINA FM and AKTINA TV are brought to you by a team of dedicated volunteers and are supported through the generous contributions of their devoted audience.

We promise that we will continue with greater determination to preserve our mission of bringing you our unique live performances and our popular radio and television programs.  To achieve this however, we need more public support because following the severe cuts in State and City grants over the past few years, we can no longer rely on the local government to fund AKTINA FM and AKTINA TV.  We invite you to support our mission of providing these two unique media outlets by making a tax-deductible contribution today.

On Friday, November 7th at 8:30pm, AKTINA's GREEK MUSIC JOURNEY continues at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College on 68th St., between Lexington and Park Avenues in Manhattan, NY, with yet another memorable musical performance dedicated to Manos Hadjidakis, one of the most important and world renowned composers of Greece.  The performance will feature Greek star Giannis Savvidakis and orchestra.  Savvidakis is a multi talented artist (singer, songwriter, composer and actor)  with an amazing career spanning over 25 years that includes countless hit songs from his recordings, many platinum albums, appearances in concerts and lead roles as an actor in top rated Greek TV series.  In 2014 Savvidakis further verified his amazing talent as a singer and actor with his participation in the 2014  television series of the Greek world channel ANT1 "Your Face Sounds Familiar" (YFSF).  In the series participating artists were required to transform themselves into specific characters of world music and interpret songs just like the character they portray.  Judges and the audience at home were voting for the winner of each contest.  Apart from his final victory as the winner of the series, Savvidakis has also won several other contests during the course of the series. Watch videos of some of the most popular songs of Giannis Savvidakis below as well as excerpts from YFSF, including the final episode when he portrayed the popular folk singer "Psarantonis".

This new musical tribute is presented on the occasion of the 20th anniversary since the passing of Manos Hadjidakis and it will feature the most representative and loved songs of this amazing composer.  The concert is part of AKTINA's ongoing commitment of producing very unique high quality musical performances which promote the different aspects of the Greek music repertoire with the most representative artists from Greece.
