The Lament’s Myrrh

lakonikos

Overview

As part of the events in the lead-up to Easter, Megaron hosts \a thematic concert dedicated to the lament. Giorgos Kotsinis is joined by acclaimed Greek musicians and together they present the evolution of the mournful sighs to the lamentations for the dead sung by women and to the fully developed and independent format of improvised music. Where emotions and the sense of loss are grafted with sounds, creating a captivating and atmospheric musical universe. An emblematic performance, carrying a message of optimism for life, for the strength of the human and for the value of tradition. “In music there is a profound truth, and that truth lies first and foremost in the honest, ageless music that has its roots in the soil.” Christopher King
