Alongside SHANTEL and his colleagues from Greece, we travel through the beauty of Greece and witness how music can turn society’s outsiders into stars, how centuries-old traditions give protest songs new vitality, and how young musicians are rewriting the songs of their ancestors into the sound of a new generation. Beyond dusty clichés and artificial folklore, this modern music/travel format sets out to provide a close-up experience of its message: Folk music is local world music and the perfect “Sound-Treck” for Europe.
