    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.

    Katlehong Footlockers

    South Africa

    Pantsula, the energetic dance from the townships, spread from Johannesburg all over South Africa more than sixty years ago – as a danced resistance to apartheid. Now it’s flourishing again. Pantsula is still about Black self-esteem and about tackling depressing reality with joie de vivre.
