Mikis Theodorakis is known very much as a political activist as well as the composer of probably the most internationally recognised piece of music ever written, Zorba’s Dance! Much of his music reflects this deep involvement in politics. However, today we will be setting politics aside and performing the love songs of this great composer. Nostalgic, melodic, profound… music is set to the poetry of writers such as Ritsos and Seferis, these songs continue to be sung throughout Greece today.
BOOK TICKETS to enjoy an evening of an eclectic fusion of international and Greek music with roots from traditional Greek folk to classical and jazz.
