Aegean Rhythm is the fruit of a great journey in the Aegean islands and shores, in their music, their culture and everyday life, given by the untimely departed director Yiannis Lambrou. With lyre instrument as a guide, Lambrou and his associates, traveled also through Greek civilization in art and life, in a way that only he could poetically manipulate everyday life’s images. So, the Friedrich Hölderlin's and Kostes Palamas's verses amid traditional ones, renew the everlasting meanings of life and love in this Archipelago.
