On 16/10, Kyriakos Sfetsas and the Greek Fusion Orchestra (GFO) present a masterful progressive jazz-fusion collection of captivating compositions in intricate arrangements, casting a fresh glance at Greek traditional music.

An internationally acclaimed composer of symphonic, chamber and solo music, as well as ballet, film, theater, electronic and jazz music, in 1976, one year after he had returned from France to Greece in the aftermath of the military junta, Kyriakos Sfetsas formed GFO. He was soon invited by Manos Hadjidakis to work as an independent producer for the Greek National Radio’s Third Program; in 1982–1993, he went on to become the radio station’s director.

The GFO served as a vehicle for the composer to attain an ambition dating back to his avant-garde period in the 1960s in Paris: to create music pushing the boundaries of Greek traditional music.

The Greek Fusion Orchestra never played live back then. Yet, in 2018, 41 years later, the band began to perform before audiences, with Dimitris Marinakis (an original member) joined by young musicians picked by Kyriakos Sfetsas.
