The Chios Music Festival commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Asia Minor Catastrophe with the project “Solidarity” by the German artist and stage designer, Barbara Ehnes. It is a video installation produced by the Ruhrtriennale/2019 Festival, that presents active citizens from different countries recording their own interpretation of solidarity.
At the same time, a concert will be held that links rebetiko, as it was formed in the large urban centres and ports of Greece after the Asia Minor Catastrophe, with contemporary music. The concert will feature the contemporary music ensemble hand werk from Cologne and musicians from Chios in recompositions of rebetiko pieces by Eleftherios Veniadis.
The concert features the contemporary music ensemble hand werk: Heni Hyunjung Kim, clarinet | Niklas Seidl, cello | Filip Eraković, accordion and the musicians from Chios: Manolis Stathis, bouzouki | Stamatis Poupalos, violin | Markellos Poupalos, oud, lute, guitar | Kyriaki Pipidi, voice. Students of the Chios Music School (teacher in charge: Michalis Pilavas) and child refugees who have attended the annual educational music programme for child refugees, taught by Andriana Neamoniti, will also participate.
The video installation will be open to the public until the 13th of August (18:30-21:00).
