Marina Satti & chórεsVocals

Yannis Konstantinidis dedicated a large part of his compositional work to the harmonization and process of folk songs, which he loved and studied in depth. To this category belongs the collection of the Eight Dodecanesian Songs, including songs from Rhodes, Kastellorizo, Tilos, Karpathos, Kos and Kalymnos, from the “Waking of the Groom” and “The Wedding Song” to “Erini” and “Votsikata”.

Marina Satti & chórεs, following the trend of the coronavirus age, split in small groups, produce audio recordings, rehearse, film themselves one by one and create an exceptionally choreographed video performance, based on Konstantinidis’ work and bathed in the Greek summer light. Marina Satti notes: “Our wish is to create a contemporary composition inspired by folk song forms, choreographies and landscapes of the Dodecanese.”

Video duration: 16 minutes
