Greek Fringe Fest // Amalgamation Project (CY)

+ Luka Lesson (AU)

When 8:30pm-9:30pm (AEST) 28 August, 2020

Greek Fringe is thrilled to present an interhemispheric collaboration, bringing together two award winning creative forces – the strikingly original Amalgamation Project (Cyprus) and prophetic poet and rapper, Luka Lesson (Australia).

This promises to be a dynamic showcase of contemporary Hellenic diversity that connects young Creatives from the source with the diaspora.

These artists have pushed the boundaries within their own fields, and we are taking it a step further by merging art forms and continents in a digital presentation that lays claim to the NOW. This event is proudly powered by the Hellenic Museum.

Amalgamation Project

Created by Vasiliki Anastasiou, the Amalgamation Project’s heart centres around her original compositions and Ermis Michail’s arrangements. It borrows and re-arranges traditional melodies from countries around the shores of the Mediterranean Sea as well as the whole of the Balkan peninsula. Vasilikí invites guest musicians from different backgrounds usually jazz, classical and folk, to share musical thoughts and experiment with the blend. Their repertoire includes polyphonic adaptations of traditional music through a modern approach.

Vocals: Vasilikí
Guitar: Ermis Michail
Bass: Andreas Rodosthenous
Percussion: Rodos Panayiotou
Special guest: Michalis Kouloumis on the violin
Choir: Margarita Gritzela, Myrto Aristidou, Argyro Christodoulou, Christina Antoniadou, Andria Avgousti, Annita Constantinou, Christina Papamichail, Ioanna Christodoulides 

Luka Lesson

Luka Lesson is a poet and rapper whose work engages with the Greek mythology of his family homeland, the fiercely political and the vulnerably self-reflective. Luka has performed with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, released his own musical albums and books, and has been published in a number international poetry collections. Luka Lesson has always used education-based programs as a means for social change both within Australia and abroad, and his work is currently being studied in English departments across the country. Luka Lesson also runs his own poetry retreat in his grandfather's village on the island of Rhodes, Greece every year. Luka's latest solo work, entitled Agapi & Other Kinds of Love will premiere in 2020.

SUPPORT THE ARTISTS

Despite being online, the same amount of love, sweat and tears go into producing these works, so we encourage people (if you have the means) to throw some coin at the artists we feature.

We have devised a tiered system of payment so you can pay what you feel to support the many people that have devoted their time and talent to this event.
