If you missed Athens Big Band in the fall when they performed (for free!), head over to the “Anna & Maria Kalouta” Athens Cultural Center at 6a Timokreodos street in nearby Neos Kosmos on December 27, 2010 for another chance.

If you aren’t in Athens for this free concert, be sure to check back on our events calendar or with the because they’ve got a great lineup of free concerts throughout the autumn and winter. This is a great venue to see a variety of performances, including traditional Greek music covering a range of genres.

Never heard of the City of Athens Big Band? I saw them last at this spot in October 2010 when they performed with the amazing Hara Kefala:

The cultural center is about 10 minutes by taxi from Syntagma Square, roughly behind the Ledra Marriot Hotel and around the corner from the Athens Atrium Hotel. It’s worth the drive or walk to see something here …

You’ll find a map with directions here.

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
