Alkinoos Ioannidis is visiting Brno as part of his European tour at the invitation of the group Jannis Moras & Banda, who will be appearing at his concert as guests. The Brno concert will take place in the Melodka club.
Ioannidis first performed in the Czech Republic in the spring of 2015 in Prague. After 50 years Brno will finally be welcoming a significant Greek musical figure. The last one was the singer Maria Farantouri with the Mikis Theodorakis Orchestra. Ioannidis’ concert will open with the group Jannis Moras & Banda, playing their own Greek creations in the world music genre, among other things building on the works of Alkinoos Ioannidis. Two generations of Greek authors linked by an interest in similar themes will be swapping places on a single stage. Footage from the concert will appear in the one of the episodes of the documentary cycle Sousedé (Neighbours), which is being filmed by Czech Television.
“As a support group we will only have limited time, and for that reason we have chosen eight songs from our repertoire which display the whole range of our work” revealed Jannis Moras, frontman of the group Jannis Moras & Banda.
The concert will take place 22 April 2018 from 7 p.m. in the Melodka club.
