Mikri Kompania Live Greek & Balkan Music
Four new faces with different musical influences and origins, came together at the end of 2015 in order to create a new musical group in the Greek community of Melbourne.
Two Australian born Greeks who grew up learning clarinet and percussion due to their “ meraki “ for Greek music, and two brothers who grew up in the northern part of Greece learning accordion and lute next to well established musicians.
Their aim is to deliver sounds and melodies from motherland Greece and the surrounding Balkans in their purest and more traditional form. The four of them as ” Mikri Kompania ” want to express themselves through music in their own refreshing way, with a desire to resurrect the memories of the older generations and give a breath from the past to the newer ones.
This band will be completed with an actress from Athens that came recently from Greece, to contribute with her Greek traditional knowledge and talent as a vocalist .
Angelos Tzovaras: clarinet
Ilias Gilos: accordion
Dimitrios Gilos: lute, guitar
Stephanos Eleutheriadis: percussion
