Official Description

Held in beautiful Gordon Chapel in Boston's Copley Square and lit by candlelight, this concert will feature Greek-Ottoman vocalist Erini of Crete and esteemed Palestinian cellist Naseem Alatrash, who will be presenting the ancient songs of Asia Minor in a new light. A fourth generation descendant of Smyrna refugees, Eirini is the inheritor of a unique musical tradition that draws influences from Greek, Turkish/Ottoman, Arabic, Armenian and Byzantine idioms. Today this music does not have a geographical home but resides in the hearts of displaced refugees such as Erini, who's carrying on the tradition of her ancestors for future generations.
