AWIL 259 - Daemonia Nymphe Fri, 2018-05-11 14:23
Fascinating Greek musical mythology with Daemonia Nymphe on this A World in London!
Spyros G. and Evi S. conceived the notion of their music project almost 25 years ago on the steps of Athens’ Parthenon, inspired by its classical grandeur and gateway to the Greek gods. Since then Daemonia Nymphe has forged a flourishing path through the previously uncharted waters of ancient Greek music, rescuing & resurrecting beautiful instruments like the varvitos, krotala, and pandoura that time forgot and loving them back to life for the modern world. Along the way, they’ve co-opted some illustrious musicians into their ethereal sonic & visual odyssey including sought-after Cretan lyra master Thodoris Ziarkas who you’ll hear on this show along witn Spyros G. For the full magical flavour of Daemonia Nymphe head over to the O2 Islington Academy on June 23rd for their next epic concert! Also on this AWIL new global CDs introduced by Norman Druker, Sophie Darling, and DJ Ritu.
