Συντάχθηκε απο τον/την Μπάμπης Παπαδάκης   
Noted Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis referred to the common musical tradition shared by modern Greece and Turkey, in thanking Bosporus University (Bogazici Universitesi) for awarding him a honorary doctorate, during a ceremony in Constantinople.
The award was given to the distinguished composer by university rector Kandri Otzaltiran.
Theodorakis addressed the audience at the university's Hall of Ceremonies, speaking via satellite link from his residence in Athens, while he underlined that he is "filled with joy simply upon hearing the word 'Bosporus'," saying he associates it with the Byzantine musical tradition that has been an inspiration for much of his work. The honorary degree was received on behalf of Theodorakis by performer Maria Farantouri, an artist associated with many of the composer's best known works who after the ceremony performed a few of Theodorakis' works accompanied by a small orchestra.
