Last month, we had the pleasure to play for a fantastic audience in one of the most unique venues imagined: an inspiring art studio, where sculptures and paintings are made. We wish happy birthday to our friends and hopefully meet soon again.
Only a week after our “zygia” night, on Sunday the 18th of February 2018, Cretan Brioche return to the Life Goddess (Store street) to celebrate “Apokries” (Greek Carnival).
“Apokries” is the three week period before the Lent leading to Easter. The roots of the Greek Carnival are going back to the worship of Dionysos (God of wine, fun and fertility) and thus It is connected to wine, food and dance.
Join us for some traditional songs of “Apokries” and more Cretan music!
Figoura School of Greek Dance and Cretan Brioche are showcasing a broad selection of dances from the island of Crete, as part of the great DANCE AROUND THE WORLD festival.
The seventeenth annual Dance Around The World Festival of World Dance will take place on the week-end of 28th and 29th October 2017 at Cecil Sharp House in Camden Town, London, U.K. http://www.datw.org.uk/
