Dear music friends,

We are organizing a percussions seminar from June 28-June 30 2007, at the island of Chios, Greece. The instructors are well known professionals with acclaimed artistry: 1. Vangelis Karipis, for traditional Greek and Eastern european percussions, 2. Socrates Yaniaris for Latin American percussions.
Arrival on Wednesday, June 27. On Saturday June 30, there will be a concert with the instructors, Yiorgos Makris (kaval, gaida) and all the participants.
The seminar costs 240 euros for those who will stay at the village's inns (includes 4 nights stay, four breakfats and four meals, 18 hours of Master Calss meetings, 7 hours of relaxing meditation).  For those who will stay at other sites it is 120 euros.  It will take place at the medieval neighbourhood, Spilia, in the village Kardamyla, Chios, Greece.

The seminar is part of a series of art events called World' s moons at Spilia that will take place throughout summer during or around the fullmoon.  It aims to bring together artists, visitors and the people of the village and become a creative bridge that connects the past and present memories of neighbourhood cultures.
