POPULAR MUSICAL TRADITIONS OF GREECE & THE MEDITERRANEAN

“PRIX FRANCE MOUSIQUE DES MUSIQUES DU MONDE” 2008

En Chordais ensemble is active in the domain of multicultural, learned and popular musical traditions of the Mediterranean, exploring both their creative continuity and their meeting with contemporary musical trends, in a fusion mood. Through an osmotic procedure the group successfully combines Byzantine and art music of Mediterranean with Greek regional idioms and contemporary music. Collaborating occasionally with virtuosi from all over the world the ensemble presents a multimedia mosaic dating from the 13th century to today. The result is a timeless dialogue between different cultures and eras.
