Maria Farantouri with the saxophonist Charles Lloyd, Herodion

Greece’s greatest singer, Maria Farantouri is coming together with the saxophonist Charles Lloyd, father of the “world music scene”. The pair will be appearing alongside the three extraordinary musicians who make up the renowned charles Lloyd New Quartet: pianist Jason Moran, bassist Reuben R. Rogers, and percussionist Eric Harland. The concert rogramme includes works composed by Charles Lloyd – from the legendary Forest Flower to his more recent pieces – and a suite of music inspired by Greek melodies, adapted and orchestrated specifically for Maria Farantouri’s voice by the pianist and composer Takis Farazis. On hand to play traditional Greek stringed instruments will be Sokratis Sinopoulos.
