Join GreekFeet for one of our favorite and most popular parties, Edessa at St. Gregory of Nyssa Church. Whether you dance to the emotionally charged sounds of Edessa under the dome of Dancing Saints or just listen enjoying the good vibe while sitting in the beautiful church, this Glendi is an experience not to be missed.
Édessa is one of the Bay Area’s premier Balkan dance bands, devoting decades to the study and performance of the rich cultural expressions of the southern Balkans. For our Glendi, Édessa will play the deep rooted and spirited music of Greece. They play with a deep understanding of the connection between dance and music. Using both traditional and modern instruments, they perform in a variety of styles, featuring long sets that interweave melodies, improvisation, and beats with dancers in mind. Édessa is George Chittenden on clarinet, saxophone, gaida (bagpipe), zurna, clarinet and guitar; Lise Liepman on santouri (hammered dulcimer) and accordion; violinist Ari Langer; bassist Paul Brown; and percussionist Sean Tergis.
