“Inside Out Dialogues”

Sokratis Sinopoulos: lyra
Evgenios Voulgaris: yayli tanbur

For two decades now, Evgenios Voulgaris and Sokratis Sinopoulos follow parallel routes, having as starting point the musical traditions of the Eastern Mediterranean. Their contribution to the revival in the use of historical musical instruments, the yayli tanbur and the politiki lyra respectively, is undeniable, while through their multifaceted artistic oeuvre they have left their trace in the contemporary Greek musical reality. The project “Inside Out Dialogues” is an interactive sound journey, having as main stops old and contemporary works, based on the art music tradition of the East, and as intermediate itineraries, the improvisational patterns (taxims) and the codes of the musical routes (makams). The main aim of this journey is the coordination of concrete musical traditions and their “translation” into a language that will bring “the inside out”.
