Müzikal Ifade

 Müzikal Ifade was established in September 2015 in Athens. Members of the band are Gwgw Batsikoura that plays the saz and Alexandra Papasteriopoulou, who sings and plays cello and traditional percussions.

The repertoire has its roots in the music of Smyrna, Asia Minor and Cappadocia. However, influences from the Mediterranean sounds, enriched their orchestrations and led to the creation of innovative compositions. This year they present distinctive orchestrations of traditional songs, as well as experimental compositions created by their own, and from various Greek composers.

For the Melitzazz Festival they have prepared, together with Nikola Palaiologo in oud and percussions, a special grid of melodies, traditional and not only.
