Once again jazz music will be spearheading the festival with a whole range of big names from the international music scene. Featured this year will be Grammy-winner Terri Lyne Carrington, drummer, composer and producer, who will open this year’s programme with The Mosaic 2 (11/07) as well as a group formed exclusively of women musicians, where vocals are provided by renowned singer and composer Lizz Wright. The Greek jazz music scene will be represented by Nikolas Anadolis Trio (13/07); Nikolas Anadolis is considered as one of the most promising jazz artists, not only in Europe but also in the United States.
One of this year’s Jazz on the Hill highlights will be the Jazz Symphony Project (12/07), based on an original idea by Sani Festival’s Artistic Director, Olga Tabouris-Babalis.
Bringing a ‘taste’ of other arts to the programme will be the Kinetic Theatre of Moscow (02/08), created by the award-winning director and choreographer Sasha Pepelyaev.
Sani Festival 2014 will also include “A”, a cinematic production inspired by the myth of Antigone, which was realised by social financing. This is an innovative event, a fully collective project directed by the talented Stathis Athanasiou (26/07).
