Sto Horio "To the Village" live Greek music for dancing

April 8, 2017 at 8:45 pm – 11:30 pm

Five Los Angeles musicians have combined their talents in Sto Horio to recreate the traditional village music of Greece. From the southern regions of Attica and Thessaly, to the mountains of Epirus, from the border towns of Macedonia, to the vast plains of Thrace, Sto Horio takes you on a musical journey through those ancient lands.
