Babis Papadopoulos returns to the SNFCC Lighthouse for the inaugural live presentation of his latest release, Fables of the Useless, alongside the talented musicians of Babis Papadopoulos Acoustic Set.
The accomplished composer and guitar virtuoso has released one more solo album, which fully justifies his reputation as a multifaceted creative music artist. With various album releases under his belt as a solo artist, a large number of original compositions for theater, dance and cinema, as well as a number of collaborations (Trypes, Heimerinoi Kolymvites, Christos Yermenoglou, Thanasis Papakonstantinou etc.), Babis Papadopoulos never ceases to push the boundaries of genres in each successive release.
Embarking on a process of exploration of his creative tools - sound, approach and media - in his new album, Fables of the Useless, the constantly evolving artist manages to subvert his own work in ten new instrumental compositions drawing from the Greek and Balkan music traditions as well as ambient soundscapes.
