But this year furthermore, Greek cities are also collaborating at international level! Following an initiative of the European Music Day Association in collaboration with the Hellenic network, European members and partners from 12 cities (Athens, Berlin, Budapest, Bucharest, krakow, Istanbul, Manchester, Milan, Ljubljana, Lisbon, Prague and Skopje) will for the first time ever, join forces to present live music events which will be live-streamed to take the audiences on a musical journey around Europe!
“Have you ever seen a singer who all parts of her body (arms, shoulders, fingers), facial expressions, breathing, are coordinate and “dance” the words? Musician, creator, vocal performer (Aggeliki Toubanaki) is the definition of a vibrant chord when she sings on stage”
“Aggeliki has been harnessed to such an extent by the power of the music that she ends up being untamed against any form of it. It’s inimitable how she brings together the world music and makes it a part of her, conveys the freedom of joy to the audience, communicating a spiritual ceremony”
