0


A different musical evening with traditional sounds will be presented at Technopolis 20, on Sunday August 29, 2021, at 8 p.m. The garden will be surrounded by the sounds of traditional music from Greece and Cyprus performed by the folk music group “Santouto” and the traditional music choir “Lalia”.

‘Santouto’ was premiered in October 2015 by Konstantina Xenofontos (vocals), Veronika Aloneftou (Santouri), Giorgos Lambrou (violin) and Charalambos Pantelis (lute), whose common love for traditional music and the need for creative expression brought them together. Their repertoire includes traditional songs and tunes from Cyprus and Greece in general, with special emphasis on local musical traditions from Cyprus, Aegean Islands, Asia Minor, Istanbul, Smyrna, Thrace, Macedonian and more. Through their own perception, aesthetic and knowledge, Santouto orchestrates beloved songs with the aim of bringing audiences closer to their own musical tradition.

The traditional music choir ‘Laliá’ * was created in Nicosia in October 2019 by Konstantina Xenofontos. Each song manifests knowledge with an unexplored place and culture, various customs and musical instruments, sound, rhythm, dance and different unusual adornments. Little by little, contact with these musical destinations awakens an aesthetic common thread that runs through Laliá’s performances. Laliá members are always open to new knowledge and experiences, whether it is a specific dance, local custom, dialect, or any opportunity to deepen their influences from from the rich range of traditional music. Asia Minor, the Aegean Islands, Thrace, Macedonia, Cyprus, Istanbul, Ponte, Crete, Southern Italy and many other destinations come together in the music of Laliá – each of them between them celebrated and sung with sincere passion!
