IKARIA NIGHT!! NIKOS PLAKAS GROUP & VIOLETA IKARI

Description

On Thursday and Friday 26-27/4 we will take you on a journey to Ikaria, a
Greek island in the Aegean Sea. The band "O Ollandos kai i parea tou" (The
Dutchman and his friends), will introduce you to the idyllic atmosphere of
the Ikarian village festival.

The group consists of:

Violeta Ikari: voice, Nikos Plakas: violin and vocals
Kostas Kalogridis: lute, bouzouki, vocals, Charis Karapetis: guitar,
bouzouki, vocals

Nikos was raised in the Netherlands having roots from the island. He has
been living there for many years, like the rest of the group. The trio is
often found at village festivals, which are organized frequently on the
Greek island by the village associations to raise money for local
charities. The genres mainly being played are "Nisiotika", music of the
Greek islands, but also other Greek music such as Laika and Rempetiko.
European tangos and waltzes have also been a popular part of the
repertoire since the 50s. Obviously there is no Ikarian village festival
without the "Ikariotiko", the dance of the Island. Local people dance to
this magical Dionysian melody while enjoying the Ikarian wine. That's
exactly what we will be doing on Thursday and Friday 26-27/4!
Violeta Ikari was born and raised on Ikaria island. She started singing at
a very young age at the traditional village festivals. She took singing
lessons, studied European and Byzantine music, writes lyrics and composes
her own music, and she sang with very wellknown musicans, such as D.
Savvopoulos, G. Kotsiras, Psarantonis etc on stage in Greece and Cyprus.
