F18 / Concert: "Women of the Mediterranean

Faneromeni 18 Arts Festival

 

A woman that loves, aches, lullabies, speaks, sings, narrates, a woman of the Mediterranean stands before us in the middle of the Cultural Foundation’s courtyard and introduces herself to us, even though we already know who she is.

 

In a Pancyprian first, Vasiliki Anastasiou brings together the solo of the Amalgamation Project and the acapella women’s choir she has created herself in a compelling alliance with a fresh repertoire that smells of the sea.

 

Stories of women of the Mediterranean, including Cyprus, demonstrate their sensibility, strength, restlessness, sacrifices, sensuality and stubbornness. Through songs that express sorrow, joy, agony, emotion, lullabies, the myth and their faith, these female voices marked by sensitivity, sweetness and sentience merge with percussions, the ney, the cello and the current sound of the guitar.

 

The songs are either traditional or tradition-oriented, seen from the prism and the “beat” of contemporary times: Byzantine sounds, vocalizations, minority dialects combine with modern harmony and body percussion.
