Minkelersstraat 2 – Zomerfabriek


Maria en Elina Markatatou brengen een muzikale hommage aan het Griekse culturele erfgoed en haar eeuwenoude tradities. Samen met jonge muzikanten met verschillende temperamenten, eigen karakters en diverse culturele identiteiten brengen ze een nieuw soort performance, waarbij de nadruk ligt op muzikaal erfgoed.

Sinds de 19e eeuw zijn mandolines hét instrument bij uitstek typisch aan de Griekse muzikale traditie. Ze vinden hun oorsprong in vier geografische regio’s: Asia Minor, Athene, Ionische Eilanden en het eiland Kreta. Griekenland is een kruispunt van culturen, te danken aan haar geografische positie. Meer dan vier eeuwen lang werd het schiereiland gedomineerd door andere landen, wat geleid heeft tot een overspoeling van culturen. Ook in de Griekse muziek herken je de verschillende culturele invloeden. Zo toont het repertoire van van de mandoline muziek de indrukwekkende variëteit aan ritmes, harmonieën en melodieën. Zowel de afwisseling van Oost-en West-Europese ritmes, als de verschillende tradities van de vier regio’s zullen muzikaal aan bod komen.

Musical and theatrical performance
“The Four Mandolin Traditions in Greece”

Musical and theatrical performance

The four traditions of the mandolin in Greece”
Sunday 24 March at 19:00
Vasilko Odessa Academic Ukrainian Music and Drama Theater , Odessa Ukraine

Organising by the Hellenic Foundation for Culture

The performance is aimed to present the Greek cultural heritage and traditions from four different regions of Greece in order to show and preserve musical traditions as well as introduce a new idea of ​​musical heritage performed by young talented musicians with different temperaments and cultural identities.

In Greece, the use of mandolins to express local musical traditions dates back to the end of the XIX century and is associated with four regions: Asia Minor, Athens, the Ionian Islands and Island of Crete.  Due to its geographical position, Greece is traditionally a crossroads of cultures and peoples.  Given the fact that Greece was a country that had been under the domination of other countries for more than four centuries, this led to a multilateral interpenetration of cultures.  This can also be found in the musical diversity of the influences by different cultures, and the repertoire of mandolin music shows an impressive variety of rhythms, harmony and melodies due to the creative exploration of both Oriental and Western European tunes, on the one hand, and demonstrates some differences between the four traditions, on the other hand.

Guitar: Manolis Fragiadakis

Music… Dance…. Theater…

Fun, Joy, Migration, Sorrow, Passion, Celebration…

Historical facts and human emotions…

Greece… end of 19th century…

An emotionally intense song… a separation… a journey… a love story…

From Asian Minor to Athens and from the Ionian Islands to Crete, in taverns, on stage, in aristocratic homes, in under balconies cantatas, at weddings and celebrations, in every corner the sound of the mandolin is heard.

In a musical performance, four different traditions, four different cultures of the mandolin in Greece are presented in a story connected to life and human emotion.

The idea for the project originated from the postgraduate thesis “Four Mandolin Traditions in Greece” by Maria and Elina Markatatou who were granted a scholarship from the Antwerp Conservatory for their work, in order to expand and enrich their research with the ultimate goal to farther more analysis.

Great musicians from Greece, Spain and Belgium add more to the existing tradition and with their talent give an excellent performance for the audience.

We will be delighted to see you in our exquisite show where together we will travel to the sounds and aromas of Greece presenting the 4 traditions of the mandolin. The music, the dance, the theatre, the song and food will travel us to the authenticity of that age and present us with a beautiful atmosphere!
