Greek folk, Asia Minor rebetiko, Balkan,
spells, dances, soundscapes
They are born during the long nights and they invite us to remember. To remember ourselves. Then they dive into the waters of the sea. Arcangel has nothing to do with the ancestral state of our land. Charmers and charmed, tamed and tamers, salivating unquestionably in the music. Roots and freedom roots and freedom. Their music sounds as if it flows out from somewhere near the end of the world, mixed with the hum of the universe. It is a pulsating, wavering, unspeakable state of being.
The Arcangel Trio presents a mixture of songs and dances from Greece, whose forms open into improvisation and sound, combining natural instruments with electronics.
Maroulita de Kol | voice, piano, electronics
Penelope Gkika | violin, voice, electronics
Evgenia Gaidi Pantazoglou bagpipe, clarinet, flute, voice
* The Arcangel trio was created in early 2019 and has appeared in various music venues in Berlin (Werkstatt der Kulturen, Prachtwerk etc.) as well as in Greece (FEX / Xanthi, Chaosmos / Athens, Cafe Aman / Serres, Kedros / Donoussa) etc.).
