Maria Manousaki and string trio

Carsten is a singer/songwriter/guitarist from Copenhagen, Denmark, where he has played in different bands/constellations. Musical inspirations and background include a wide range of music, from old blues/rhythm&blues, jazz, Americana, folk and bluegrass, etc…From Lightnin’ Hopkins, Muddy Waters, Bill Evans, Tamla Motown & Stax,- over Hank Williams, Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Grateful Dead, The Band, – among others.

After a couple of recordings with Maria adding amazing strings for Turning Leaf’s upcoming album, – it was obvious that we should do a major project together with the addition of the string trio.
We will present mostly a variety of Carsten’s songs, – blended with a few covers mostly by the above-mentioned names. Partly with the string trio, partly as a duo in more open, improvisational songs.

Vlatos Jazz presents Yiagos Hairetis and Maria-Christina Harper

Lute player and vocalist Yiagos Hairetis (Crete) and experimental harpist Maria-Christina Harper (London) collaborate for the first time to produce a dynamic unexpected duet. The duo brings together the traditional music of Crete and the London experimental music scene. The unique rock soundscapes that Hairetis creates with his lute are fused with Maria-Christina’s powerful and experimental playing on her harp.

Yiagos Hairetis got involved in music in a very young age, picking up the lute and other traditional Cretan instruments. His upbringing in Anogia, Crete, home of legendary musicians of Cretan music like Psarantonis and Nikos Xylouris coincided with him listening to classic rock bands such as Led Zeppelin, Doors, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath which influenced him to develop his unique style of playing the lute. This attracted Giannis Aggelakaswho invited Hairetis to record with him for his 2012 album “Όσοκιανδέρνειοάνεμος”. Since then he has performed in many venues throughout Greece and has toured with Aggelakas and Episkeptes. His collaborations include Psarantonis, Psarogiorgis, rock band Last Drive who devoted a song to him, Dimitris Poulikakos and the hip hop band Social Waste

Maria-Christina is an award winning, London based, an experimental electric harp player who creates compositions using a loop, wah and distortion pedal effects. She is the first prize winner of the Wales International Harp Competition (2010) performing her own compositions on the electric harp.MC studied the harp with an entrance scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music. She uses bows and guitar sliders to make the instrument emulate bass, percussive and guitar‐like tones. In 2012MCformed her solo project MC & The 7 Pedalsand recently released her album“Gluten free” under Valentine Records (UK). The resulting music is cinematic, dreamlike and highly atmospheric as it seamlessly blends traditional and avant‐garde techniques to create mesmerizing new forms.

Vlatos Jazz presents Striftalia

Το μουσικό σχήμα “Στριφτάλια” δημιουργήθηκε το 2014 από τρεις μουσικούς οι οποιοι καταγονται από τα Χανιά της Κρήτης και αποτελείται από τον Ηλία Βλαμάκη στη λυρα,τον Δημήτρη Βλαμάκη στο λαούτο,ούτι και μαντολίνο και τον Κώστα Κουρκουνακη στην κιθάρα και το μπουλγαρί ενώι Το όνομα του συγκροτήματος υπωδειλωνει τα ξυλινα κλειδιά των μουσικων οργανων στη λαικη μουσική. Οι τρείς μουσικοί έχοντας παράλληλες μουσικές διαδρομές στο κρητικό και το παραδοσιακό ρεπερτόριο της ελληνικής μουσικης, συμπράττουν για ένα στόχο.Αυτός είναι η παρουσίαση διαχρονικών μελωδιών από την παράδοση της Κρήτης και του υπόλοιπου Ελλαδικού χώρου μεσα από σπανιες καταγραφές που ηχογραφήθηκαν σε δίσκους γραμμοφώνου από σπουδαίους μουσικούς των περασμένο αιώνα. Το μουσικό σχήμα ’ΣΤΡΙΦΤΑΛΙΑ¨ εχει συμμετασχει σε συναυλείες και εκδηλώσεις στην Ελλαδα και το εξωτερικό και είναι ολοι τους μελη του παραδοσιακού μουσικού συλλογου Αποκορώνου ¨Ο ΧΑΡΙΛΑΟΣ¨.

The musical “Striftalia” was created in 2014 by three musicians from Chania, Crete, composed by Elias Vlamakis in lyra, Dimitris Vlamakis in the lute, oud and mandolin and Kostas Koukounakis in the guitar and the bullring, The name of the ensemble sows the wooden keys of musical instruments in folk music. The three musicians who have parallel musical traditions in the Cretan and the traditional repertoire of Greek music, join for a goal. This is the presentation of diachronic melodies from the tradition of Crete and the rest of Greece through rare recordings recorded on gramophone records by great musicians of the past century. The “STRIPALIA” musical ensemble has participated in concerts and events in Greece and abroad and they are all members of the traditional music collection of Apokoronas “HARILAOS”.
