The Musicport of Athens International Airport (AIA) will welcome the “Music Village”, one of the most dynamic artistic communities in Europe, this Friday, January 22, and offer moments of art, music and joy to passengers and visitors.

Puppet show by Helen Vogiatzidou
12:00 – 12:20
The programme starts with Helen Vogiatzidou’s puppet show for kids entitled Ice Dream, which describes a complicated everyday life, where wishes are not as simple as they initially seemed to be.
Chamber music for two violoncellos
12:40 – 13:00
Two acknowledged cello soloists, Aggelos Liakakis and Alexis Karaiskakis – Nastos will take everyone on a musical journey from Early Music to European avant-garde. Aggelos Liakakis has studied in Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Royal College of Music in London and Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow. Alexis Karaiskakis – Nastos is one of the most promising young cello soloist in Greece and member of Camerata / Armonia Atenea.
“Ap’ Allou” Quartet
13:10 – 13:40
The quartet “Ap’ Allou” will then take the stage and offer a joyful dance programme, varying from funky Balkan rumbas and gypsy belly dancing, to their own dynamic contemporary compositions.
