ATHENS, PARIS, NEW YORK:

Ας ερχόσουν για λίγο, J'attendrai, Night and Day...

Three cities, three languages, three cultures meet at the crossroads of a single musical tradition! Whether known as ρετρό, chansons or standards, these are melodies that have been loved for generations, popular, urban music of the mid-20th century.

Of Greek and English origins, Marina Petsali was a guest singer in the very successful Retro Greek Music concerts at Art Base. Now she and French musician Yannick Jacquet set out to put that repertoire in context. The result is an exuberant programme of familiar and less-familiar songs, spanning the 1930ies to the 1950ies.

Γύρισε, Que reste-t-il de nos amours, Body and Soul...

It is a musical journey that combines pieces by Sougioul, Vellas, Attic and other Greek composers, with French and American hits of the same period. We revisit the world of Broadway, of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers, but also Charles Trenet, Jean Sablon and Sidney Bechet. As an American living in Paris, Bechet literally bridged the Atlantic with his music and for his compositions, as well as some of the other pieces, Marina and Yannick will be joined by wonderful clarinetist Andris Amantovs.
