Guest: Martha Frintzila & Kostas Vrachnos
Michalis Siganidis, a founding member of Heimerinoi Kolymvites and Primavera en Salonico, and The Unlimited Shrimp band join forces for the first time with Martha Frintzila and the poet Kostas Vrachnos, in an unpredictable music encounter at the SNFCC Lighthouse.
Michalis Siganidis's creative improvisation is grafted with Martha Frintzila's expressiveness, engendering a new music narrative.
The musician will perform selections from his discography, which spans an array of music styles and inspirations - jazz, electronic, traditional Greek music, poetry and humor will all contribute to an extraordinary evening.
An instrumentalist, composer and lyricist, Michalis Siganidis's music is accentuated by a bold improvisational style, inspired by traditional music and characterized by the use of music collage.
