Rodopi Ensemble

The band perform the music of Thrace, a unique cultural community of Greece and a meeting point of the music cultures of the North, South, East and West. This ancient kingdom is the home of heroes and gods of antiquity and is mainly known as the gateway to the worship of Dionysus, the god of wine, fertility and ecstasy. The places of Dionysus have vibrant musical traditions formed during thousands of years of existence. Rodopi continue and pass on these traditions to younger generations. They have excellent knowledge of the musical idioms and traditions of this area and waste no opportunity to entertain the people of the region at every opportunity
