    In the streets

    Eastern Europe Sounds

    Elaionas  
    Branko Galoić & Skakavac Orkestar  

    LUCERNE FESTIVAL is more than just the evening’s symphony concert. “In the Streets,” the world music festival within the Festival, brings a week of music making in the streets and squares of the historic Old City.

    Elaionas

    Greece

    Elaionas means “olive garden,” and this group is like an idyllic grove is where the most beautiful melodies of Greek folk music are cultivated. The quartet’s repertoire ranges from traditional songs to rebetiko and contemporary folk. The focus is on the vocals, but the guitar, accordion, ney (flute), [1] and davul (drum) also come into play.

    Branko Galoić & Skakavac Orkestar

    Croatia and elsewhere

    The Croatian singer-songwriter Branko Galoić draws on a variety of styles in his songs, from rock and pop to ska and chanson. And he spices them with a strong shot of Balkan brass. Three wind players and a drummer supply the needed drive.
