Mihalis Kalkanis Group featuring Haig Yazdjian and Jannis Anastasakis
WHAT: Contrabassist Mihalis Kalkanis stands out among the new generation of Greek jazz musicians. A risk-taking creative artist and composer, Kalkanis fuses electronic music with traditional songs of his grandmother’s generation, doing field recordings in religious ceremonies of immigrants, and delivering a fusion of sounds in his album World Echoes in Athens. In this concert at the Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus, he collaborates with Syria-born, Armenian oud virtuoso Haig Yazdjian and avant-garde master of electric guitar Jannis Anastasakis to create a soundscape where jazz, ambient, traditional, world music, psychedelia, noise, melodies and electronic are woven together to give birth to something altogether fresh.
WHEN: 24- 25/07 at 9:30 pm
WHERE: Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus
