Κοινωνικό δίκτυο της Πάρου και Αντιπάρου
From Berlin, political and artistic centre of Europe, to Mytilene at the edge of the continent, where humanity is challenged, where the enlightment of a "we stay in Europe" is colliding with harsh reality...
Such is Alcalica's journey over the last 10 years, punctuacted by eclectic collaborations, 6 vinyl albums and appearances at major festivals. An acrobat's journey playing with borders, proving de facto that borders exist precisely to be overcome: civilisations and traditions meet, fuse and interact.
The music of Alcalica abolishes several pseudo-dilemmas such as "East-West". It resolutely brings into equitable dialogue the baglamas and the santoor with contemporary electronics, the aptaliko of Mytilene and the interwar rembetiko with drum'n'bass and urban industrial. Broken beats and poetry in several languages shape a cinematic and sincere dance music: Aegean Dream'n'bass.
Leonidas Danezos: hardware electronics, Persian santoor, Greek baglamas
