International Jazz Day - Thessaloniki 2018 - A Blues Voyage - A journey into deep Blues on 26 April 2018, 19:30 - “Ksefoto”, Lykourgou 5, Ladadika

Thessaloniki is being prepared to explore the uncharted waters of Blues on the occasion of the celebration of the International Jazz Day, embarking on a “blue” but enjoyable “voyage into the deep”, on Thursday 26 of April 2018 (*instead of 30th of April due to the weekend of May 1st) from 19:30 at Ksefoto, Lykourgou 5, Ladadika.
 
Into this diving, visual artist Iro Kovatzi is guiding the audience into the majestic “colours of senses and of Jazz”, musical producer and journalist Nikos Theodorakis is navigating the music seas while drifting on the currents of memories, solist & conductor of Jazz Symphonic Orchestra of North Greece Michael Hatzianastasiou is shedding light upon the relationship between music and culture through an ethnomusical approach of Jazz Harmony, while the blues-rock band of Nikos Ntounousis “Nick & the Backbones” with Nikos Ntounousis (electric guitar, vocals), Lakis Tzimkas (electric bass), Giannis Stanopoulos (tenor saxophone) and Zachos Skouras
(percussions) is stimulating emotions and giving inspiration for whatever “journey” starts after an exciting night.
 
The event is under the auspices of “Club Unesco of Arts, Letters and Sciences of Greece”, of “Conservatory of North Greece” and of “Culture Republic”.
