Live from the Odeion School of Music in Chicago, Illinois, the traditional band Zephyros will perform a musical journey around Greece via Facebook Live on Saturday, May 15, at 8:00pm CST / 9:00pm EST.
Proceeds from the performance will benefit our Project Hope for Greece #ChildrenOfGreece campaign which supports six children’s charities doing critical work on the ground in Greece.
Band members include Dimitrios Dallas (clarinet, gaida, santouri and bouzouki); Yanni Kousiounelos (percussion and bouzouki); Peter Karnavas (violin) and Petros Dragoumis (guitar and laouto).
Zephyros will perform traditional music from various regions of Greece including Roumeli, Peloponnese, Ipeiros, Cyclades islands, Dodecanese islands and Thrace. The songs will be a mix of rebetika and laika.
The band’s performance comes more than two months after a previous Facebook Live concert benefitting our #ChildrenOfGreece campaign raised $3,155 on February 27.
