Contrabassist Mihalis Kalkanis stands out among the new generation of Greek jazz musicians. He comes from a music family and apart from participating in acclaimed bands, he is a risk-taking creative artist and composer, successfully experimenting with music and delivering us surprising compositions. 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, Kalkanis once again attempts to do something unique. Collaborating with the Syria-born, Armenian oud virtuoso Haig Yazdjian and the avant-garde master of electric guitar Jannis Anastasakis, Kalkanis has created a soundscape where jazz, ambient, traditional, world music, psychedelia, noise, melodies and electronic are woven together to give birth to something altogether fresh.

Musicians: Lefteris Andriotis Cretan lyre, Manolis Giannikios drums, Mihalis Kalkanis contrabass, Christos Kalkanis clarinet, Orestes Benekas keyboards, piano, Haig Yazdjian oud, vocals, Jannis Anastasakis guitar, FX

Lighting design: Maria Venetaki

Artistic supervision: Michalis Kalkanis

As part of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival 2020. Featuring Haig Yazdjian and Jannis Anastasakis.
