Exactly 20 years ago, Encardia introduced themselves to us with melodies and songs from the Greek-speaking regions of Southern Italy. They brought to Greece traditional dances from those regions; they taught us the steps; we endlessly danced at their performances; we cried with folk songs of love, immigration, labour and protest of the Greek-speaking communities; we sang with them in the local dialect (Grico); and we followed them through their journeys in the Italian South.

20 years of Encardia; thousands of concerts throughout Greece and abroad, two prominent music-theatrical productions, seven digital albums and a documentary under the band’s belt. While their next step is always eagerly awaited, they now bring us a new, fresh and always electrifying performance consisting not only of their most well-known and loved repertoire, but also playing traditional Greek songs along with their other songs. Prominently featuring the band’s beloved personal sound, this performance is presented from another perspective; the perspective of a collective that has persisted and lasted for 20 years, continuously extending its artistic boundaries.
From Salento & Napoli’s tarantella and the immigration songs & their utopia, to Vincenzo Kornaros’ Erotokritos and Greek folk dance Raikos, as well as Yiannis Ritsos’ Vertigo of his renowned poem Moonlight Sonata… In the end, the audience is swept away to the steps of tarantella, the Mediterranean’s most vigorous dance.
