Budapest Folk Fest - III. Meybahar Evening - TRIO “EK Vatheon”

Event date/time : 2019-05-23 20:00

Meybahar Band collaborates with guest musicians from abroad in regular full-length evening programs. This time Trio “Ek vatheon” from Greece will be their guest. “Ek vatheon” means “from within”, “from the bottom of the heart”. It promises to be a beautiful evening also for those who love Turkish Mevlevi Dervis music. Become members of an intimate circle and get deep into the sound of the ney, the oud, and ourselves. This event has been organized by Meybahar with support from the Fonó.

The music of Trio “Ek vatheon” reflects notions of music from times preceding the modern period. They speak to their audience through makams and Byzantine, Persian or Arab music. Their repertoire and compositions are the kind of music that the Mevlevi Dervises used in their ceremonies and call forth other Mediterranean worlds. Thanks to Meybahar’s organization and support from the Fonó, this is the first time we’ll see Trio “Ek vatheon”  live in Hungary:

Kyriakos Tapakis - oud
Nikos Paraoulakis - ney
Lukas Metaxas – drum
