The Tradoxicals: Lena Platonos and Stergios T. at Onassis Stegi

1 min read

Not traditional, but “tradoxical” (i.e., a wordplay on traditional and paradoxical), Lena Platonos, one of the most significant figures of the Greek electronic scene, returns to Onassis Stegi with her new musical endeavor that combines musical tradition with synthesizers and contemporary electronic sound.

In 2015, she presented the adaptation of Emily Dickinson’s and Kostas Kariotakis’ poetry on the Main Stage. In 2017, she staged a special live concert together with the great Philip Jeck that framed the screening of the “lp” documentary by Christos Petros on her life and work.

This year, Lena Platonos, along with her steady collaborator Stergios T. (Stergios Tsirliagkos), will present a cluster of traditional songs under their distinct perspective, with the aim to elicit the arcane element of our music tradition: from the song of the misty northern woods, lakes, and rivers of Macedonia and Thrace to the metaphysical laments of Mani and the unflagging voice of Crete.

More than twenty songs from across the country will be presented for the very first time under a “tradoxical” light. Three performers and four traditional instrument soloists along with Lena Platonos and Stergios T. will occupy the Main Stage of Onassis Stegi on a sensual and emotional journey, embracing traditional sounds and nuances, as well as synthesizers, computers, and other contemporary media.
