Traditional songs of the Aegean Sea

Master violinist Kyriakos Gouventas is an all-round musician and a valued member of the Thessaloniki Ensemble of Traditional Music and Savina Yannatou's Primavera en Salonico. In addition, he frequently performs as a guest musician with other popular Greek singers and musicians. He is (co-)founder of "Estoudiantina", an ensemble that has a solid reputation in Greek folk music, especially in the performance of Asian Minority musical heritage. Kyriakos is also known for his extensive rebetika repertoire.

Kyriakos Gouventas  is a welcome guest in De Centrale and has been a guest here several times. For this concert he shares the stage with singer Kaiti Koullia and lute player Vasilis Smanis. The trio brings a beautiful anthology of the musical traditions of the Aegean.

Kaiti Koullia comes from Kalymnos, one of the Dodecanese Islands. She has collaborated with well-known artists such as Yanis Voglis, Mariza Koch, Chronis Aidonidis, George Dalaras, Dimitra Galani, Lavrendis Mahairisas, Glykeria, Savinna Yanatou, Pandelis Thalassinos, Christos Tsiamoulis, Orfeas Peridis and many others.

For more information about the life and work of Kaiti Koullia, we would like to refer you to the unsurpassed website, the place to be for every lover of the better Greek music!
