In the studio we had the two organizers of this very special concert, Sofia from Halo Productions and Serdar from Stichting Pera. We played favorite hits by Glykeria and talked about the upcoming concert in Paradiso (14 May). Glykeria is one of the most influential and successful singers in Greece. This will be her first concert in Amsterdam.
Glykeria is one of the most influential and successful singers in Greece. She has seen more than a few gold and platinum album releases, has collaborated with many Greek and international artists and has also seen huge success outside of Greece. Her latest album was released late 2016, which includes four original tracks and fresh covers of some of her favorite songs. This will be her first concert in Amsterdam.
Glykeria will take us on a trip around the Greek music tradition through the sounds of particular areas of Greece as well as the Asia Minor. From the nostalgic rembetika and the almost iconic old folk music to the Smyrneika, the songs from “Smyrna (Izmir)”, and the music from the Aegean sea. Glykeria will reveal the strong social and cultural links that unite not only two countries, that being Turkey and Greece, but also a whole region and generations. Love, migration, nostalgia, the sharing of joy and pain of loss will be narrated in an unprecented concert through the authentic, warm and genuine voice of the successful Glykeria.
This concert is presented by the Pera Foundation (stichting Pera) supported by Halo Productions and Paradiso Amsterdam.
