Isaac Hayes and Portishead, David McCallum and Snoop Dog, Beyoncé and Chi-Lites. Athens Festival proudly presents El Sistema Greece for the second time in it history at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, in a concert where modern hits cross paths with oldies. Musicians from over forty nationalities will be on stage together for this surprisingly enjoyable experience, including a symphony youth orchestra from around the world, a funk band and a DJ. The whole programme is planned and overseen by well-known producer Blend Mishkin.
Since 2016, El Sistema Greece has been giving music lessons to children and youths at refugee camps in the Attica region (Skaramagas, Eleonas and various areas in Athens). Following in the footsteps of El Sistema Venezuela (1975), within just a few years El Sistema Greece has managed to adapt to the volatile social situation in Greece and, through music, forge a tight-knit group of people regardless of their origin, language and religion.
