Live at 1st Windcraft Music Fest

Two summer nights filled with sounds, words and voices… will bring back together locals and “foreigners” in the inn yard that once used to be a lively meeting place for travellers.

Windcraft Music Centre is moving to Katydata, a picturesque village in the valley of Solea, to organise its first music festival, inviting local bands that step on different musical traditions to create new and original sounds: TRI-COOL-ORE are “flirting” with jazz and traditional musical shades, the Ioannis Vafeas Project carries some great jazz musicians into jazz experimentations, The Amalgamation Trio rearranges Balkan and Mediterranean songs mixing them with jazz, improvisation and electronic music, the project Acapella Solo Loop uses voices, sounds and loops to tell “weird stories”, Rumba Attack draw inspiration from Spanish flamenco to compose their own rumbas, while Duo Lelale sings for us songs of the Mediterranean and Asia Minor in their own distinct voices.

Children and grown-ups will have the chance to participate in free music workshops and meet traditional musicians and singers, while walks in the village will reveal to everyone the hidden stories of the place and its people.

Traditional treats and food will be available during the festival and visitors will be able to use a camping site free of charge.

Combining its educational activities with the need to promote the original local music production, Windcraft Music Centre organises the specific festival, in an effort to bring closer the local art scene with the traditional environment of the countryside and to create a common space for cultural interaction.
