Event Description

Building upon last year’s successful event with Sounds of Cyprus, musicians from the Princeton Hellenic Studies community will collaborate in a concert performance with PANEL, by Elena Chris and Peter Douskalis. Greek Rock Sounds takes listeners on a journey through the evolution of Greek rock music and its cross-cultural influences including blues, jazz, Latin, and reggae.

As each era and subgenre of Greek rock unfolds, the song selections demonstrate the profound impact of globalization and multilingual cultural exchange inherent in rock 'n roll. The adaptation and combination of styles, including folk melodies and rhythms, results in a rich musical culture experience.

PANEL is the emergence of the collaborative musicing of Peter Douskalis and Elena Chris, and is a project that blends together their passions in American music, Greek music, original music, Sounds of Cyprus, and education programs.

The concert takes form as a multimodal lecture and performance presentation.
