As part of a continuing interdisciplinary initiative to promote both ancient and modern Greek culture, the Department of Classics at UC Santa Barbara has teamed with the music department's ethnomusicology program to present "Labyrinth: An Evening of Original Compositions and Traditional Music From Greece."
The concert begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, October 19, in the MultiCultural Center Theater at UCSB. The event is free and open to the public, although seating is limited.
"Labyrinth promises an exceptional evening of Greek music," said Helen Morales, professor of classics at UCSB and one of the event organizers. "The concert will feature some of the most internationally renowned Greek music composers, performers, and vocalists in a unique collaboration."
The program includes Ross Daly and Kelly Thoma, from Houdetsi on the island of Crete; Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble; and the duo Teslim, who perform Greek, Turkish, and Sephardic music.
The concert is made possible through the Argyropoulos Endowment in Hellenic Studies, which was established in 2001 to support the study and dissemination of classical and modern Greek culture at UCSB.
