    In the streets

    Elaionas  
    Wild Strings Trio  

    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.

    Wild Strings Trio

    Slovakia/Slovenia/France

    What a mix! A jazz violinist from Slovakia, a classical cellist from France and a Balkan guitarist from Slovenia – and it guarantees exciting, cosmopolitan music. These three musicians with completely different roots have created their very own multifaceted, multi-stringed sound. Poignant and exhilarating.
