GREEK MUSIC

IONIA GROUP: ON THE TRAILS OF TRADITION

T.C.H.
From Thrace to Crete
And from the Ionian Islands to Asia Minor
A musical performance dedicated to a great performer of Greek traditional music, Chronis Aidonidis.
The yards of small houses with tiled roofs still smell of basil, the aroma of tsipouro is lingering in the air, sounds from the past are heard on the streets. The refugee neighbourhood of Nea Ionia has given life to new musicians and groups of advanced technique and performance in traditional music.
The Ionia Group was created ten years ago by Nektarios Demelis, the group’s Artistic Director. It consists of two orchestras and two choirs (children’s and adults’) and by a school for traditional music. The choirs are conducted by Kornelia Frangogianni.
