Daniel Hope & Friends VI: Balkan Roots

Back by popular demand, violinist Simos Papanas conceived this season’s Balkan Roots program, combining both fine art and folk music traditions from Eastern Europe and the Balkans. The limits of life and the reach to the supernatural have been a challenge to every civilization, inspiring philosophers, writers, poets, artists and musicians across the world. This program explores the musical approach of myths, legends, curses and dirges by the traditional musicians of the Balkans and the East Mediterranean, in parallel or in opposition to the European classical music tradition.
