Description

ALKINOOS IOANNIDIS & BAND IN GENEVA

18 May 2016 - UPTOWN GENEVA - 2, Rue de la Servette, 1201 Genève, Suisse

The Geneva Greek Association proudly presents Alkinoos Ioannidis, one of the most well loved Greek songwriters and performers. His amalgamation of Cypriot and Greek influences along with byzantine, classical and rock music elements, in addition to his unique vocal delivery, have seen him transcend the confines of the international Greek community and resulted in his first worldwide release, “Local Stranger”, in 2012.

“The Small Suitcase” album moves his song writing beyond Greek borders as the country continues to find itself at the heart of an unprecedented economic and refugee crisis. Alkinoos dedicated this record to “both those forced to leave their homeland and those who feel their homeland has deserted them”. A collection of songs inspired by the process refugees face when fleeing all that they’ve ever known.

His prolific output (over 50 solo records and collaborative releases) has only been matched by his touring schedule, which has included shows in major cities in Europe, the US and beyond. Standout performances include Celtic Connections Festival, Madison Square Garden and The Lincoln Centre (NYC), Queen Elizabeth Hall and Union Chapel (London), Berlin Philharmonie, the Acropolis theatre (Athens), the ancient theatre at Epidaurus and shows with the RSNO and St Petersburg Philarmonia. The 2016 “Small Suitcase” tour will include dates in Australia, Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Luxembourg among others.

On this journey, Alkinoos will be accompanied by some of best soloists in Greece. This is a unique coming together of creative minds, always searching for a new approach to musical arrangement every time they meet.
