Cretan Brotherhood pays respects to Mikis Theodorakis in Galatas

With flowers and messages of love, Mikis Theodorakis former home in Galatas has become a shrine to his life and music.

Among the items of shrine, the Cretan Brotherhood of Melbourne and Victoria was able to pays its respects.

The death of the world renowned composer and political activist has caused grief across the world.

Mikis Theodorakis was an Academy Award winning composer of films such as Zorba the Greek and Serpico.

He was a prominent political voice who spoke out against the Greek Junta, for which he was imprisoned, and numerous other causes.

Mikis Theodorakis is not just a Cretan, or Greek personality, but a global icon who will be sorely missed.
