“A musical intercultural journey from past to present”
A UK premiere of the music movie, taking place in 70 different locations, in Greece and abroad, in cities where the Smyrnians found new homelands. With the participation of more than 120 important singers and musicians from Greece and abroad, who perform live in the video. A Q&A and panel discussion will follow. More information at Smyrna, The Muse of Ionia – UK Premiere

**** LIVE CONCERT ****
‘Τι σε μέλει εσένανε’
A unique and not to miss acoustic performance of our favourite songs from Smyrna, the coast of Asia Minor and Crete, performed in a unique way from the singers and musicians Irini Derembei, Fide Köksal and Karolos Kouklakis. Fide, a Turkish artist from Izmir who lives in Greece, Irini, half Smyrnian and half Cretan and Karolos the Cretan, will take the audience on a journey through the music, the lyrics, the flavor, the senses of both sides of the Aegean sea. An intercultural musical performance that brings us close to the memories of our origins. More information here: Τι σε μέλει εσένανε – Live concert
