Come to the Kendro Elenhou Tileoraseon, in the heart of bohemian Kipseli and enjoy Mediterranean sounds. Why Mediterranean? Well, the word says it all: Mare-medi-terra, which means “sea in the middle of the earth”. It’s the part of the world where Europe, Asia and Africa meet.  And what is music if not an exchange of views, a dialogue between different people?

The program is as follows:
