Abstract

The Domna Samiou Folk Music Association and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center presented the Third Meeting of Youth Folk Ensembles, an event which completes the SNFCC’s themed events programming entitled Faces of the Hero which took place in celebration of the bicentenary of the 1821 Greek Revolution of. More than a hundred young musicians and singers, inspired by the personality of Domna Samiou and the precious treasure she left as a legacy, bring to today the sounds of tradition. Sometimes with performances that follow faithfully in the footsteps of the master singers and musicians of the past, and sometimes with a mood for experimentation, ingenious adaptations or even brand new compositions, the participating youth bands comprise an intriguing and multifaceted musical mosaic, representative of the colourful picture that is the Greek traditional music scene of today, and of the way local traditions interact with the traditions of neighbouring nations, as well contemporary musical trends.
