REVMA returns to Athans with the living art of traditional Greek music (“Dimotika”), for listening, and, irresistably, for dancing. Mesmerizing pentatonic and polyphonic Epirot mountain laments and celebrations, lyrical melodies and the “springing” sousta and ballos of the Aegean, Dodekanese, and Ionian islands, powerful odd-metered Macedonian and Thracian rhythms, and the delicate modal tones of urban Smyrnaika, are all shaped by a history drenched in struggle, war, migration, resilience, and philotimia, and charged with Greek life-embracing passion and wit.

Let’s welcome summer with a beautiful musical journey through Greece.
