A unique theatrical quartet, presenting the Rhapsodies of Homer, ODYSSEY, directed by the Greek actress and interpreter of Ancient Drama, Sophia Hill, and orchestrated by Yiorgos Kaloudis, with two greek ancient musical instruments, the cretan lyra and the kanun. Sophia Hill, Ruth Hill, Yiorgos Kaloudis and Antonis Myriangos.
"TRAVELING LIGHT" trio! Three long time friends, improvisers and composers share their dreams and visions, creating a new trio; rich in texture and uniquely personal in their way of sharing the light. With David Lynch on the saxes and flutes, Yiorgos Limakis on the guitars and lute.
It’s been a long road, with many miles travelled, for these two performers from very different artistic backgrounds to come together, after 16 years of working together.
This unique collaboration is based on common aesthetic criteria, the freedom provided by improvisational techniques and the sheer pleasure of sharing a stage and understanding the power of song in the simplest form.
“LEMONCELLO” duet with the piano player Sotiris Lemonidis, (2012) A powerful duet of a piano-cello, with original compositions and improvisations of the two performers, with a plethora of colours and elements, giving a brand new form of repertory on that historical combination of instruments.
“FURTUNA” group with the kanun player Goksel Baktagir, the violin player Nedim Nalbantoglu and Ruth Hill. (2007) One of the most powerful international bands ever. Based on original compositions of Goksel and Nedim, this band brings the joy in its most magnificent way, through the dynamic range of rich melodies, rhythms and amazing makam improvisations.
They performed at the Manchester Jazz Festival in 2007.
Yiorgos Kaloudis & Ruth Hill duet, (2004 up to date). The most unique duet reveals the poetic beauty of the cello and the kanun complete one another. The freedom provided by compositions specially made for that orchestration, the improvisation, and the sheer pleasure of sharing the silence, creating vibrations in their purest form.
“FAROS” duet with the saxophone player David Lynch, (2002-2008) Pure improvisation, original compositions, one of the most amazing duets of two gifted multi instrumentalists, creating and orchestrating the moment, with an extended use of the live-loop-recording technique by Yiorgos.
“OCASSIONAL DREAM” was his first band, (1996) Read about the band here!
