The most dynamic trio in modern Greek music, Natassa Bofiliou, Gerasimos Evaggelatos and Themis Karamouratidis come together again to perform old and new songs from their latest album BABEL. The album is inspired by the realities of Athens today, a city in the state of flux, rising from the bottom, doing away with old ideas and sailing into unchartered waters. The sounds are orchestral, rhythmic and full of depth and emotion, fusing together popular music from Greece, the Balkans with elements of jazz.

Natassa Bofiliou (vocals), Gerasimos Evaggelatos (lyrics, artistic direction) and Themis Karamouratidis (music composition, instrumentals) are the most talented artists of their generation, who have captured the climate of the times through their music. Bofiliou is a dazzling and passionate performer and this is a concert not to be missed.
