, traditional music ensemble

The Music Ensemble “En Chordais” is a workshop of sounds of the Eastern Mediterranean and neighboring lands based in Thessaloniki. The Music Ensemble, along with the Music School, the books and CD productions, offers an extremely broad perspective of music in Greece.
“En Chordais” is active in the domain of multicultural, learned music and Greek popular musical traditions. The members of the Ensemble have particularly interesting musical backgrounds that lead to a multifarious and creative character. The common factors that guarantee authenticity in their search for style are their love for popular musical tradition, rooted in their own experiences and their studies in Byzantine music.

The Ensemble has cooperated with Greek and foreign Artists such as Nikos and Yiasemi Saragouda, Petroloukas Halkias, Chronis Aidonidis, Solon Lekkas, the Turks Suleyman Erguner, Melihat and Necip Gulses, the Lebanese Samir Siblini, Imane Homsy, Ghada Shbeir, Charbel Rouhana, the Tunisian Sonia M’ barek, and the Persians Kiya and Ziya Tabassian and Hossein Omoumi.
