A Concert Celebrating Songs From Around the Mediterranean & The Worldfrom Elena Maroulleti
Under the title, “Mediterranean Musical Odyssey”, this unique concert features the amazing singers/musicians from Greece Eleni and Souzana Vougioukli. All of their songs stand out for their power of expression and their diachronic qualities, both in terms of history and geography. They sing in over 20 dialects and languages both “a capella” and/or accompanied by piano, guitar and percussion, instruments which they play themselves. Their repertoire consists of traditional Greek songs in all dialects, including that of the Greek speaking community of Southern Italy, Portuguese fado, Spanish, French, Italian, Romanian, Arabic, Gypsy, Serb, Armenian, Sephardic, Pomak (a Slavic dialect of the Rhodopi mountain in N. Greece), Bulgarian, American blues, jazz, rembetika (Greek blues), as well as their own compositions.
