The Garlic Duo in the "Klimax" Garden
The "Garlic Duo" is a duet that cooks eastern Mediterranean music... two young musicians daring to envision and experiment with old tools come across new musical discoveries... They are coming on Sunday, December 20, 2015 at 20.00 in the Klimax Garden for a unique music meeting.
Theodora Athanasiou (guitar) and Pavlos Spyropoulos (contrabass), the two members of the ensemble, give their own answer to how expressively an old kitharoni (Greek folk guitar) with wire strings coming from the romantic and insurrectionary world of rebetiko (type of Greek urban folk music) can play, to how singing a bass coming from the sober emotional world of a symphony can “dance”.... to how two young musicians with mixed and complex aesthetic identities can grapple with old patterns making new of their own...
In a kitchen where... the harmonies meet traditional colors... their own melodies encounter others’- both celebrated and not... A fresh recipe that tests and is tested...!
