‘EPIC SONGS FOR EPIC TIMES’
RISE! is a new six-piece band built around the beautiful alto voice of Greek singer Iris Mavraki
RISE! explores and celebrates the idea of the epic narrative song, drawing ontraditions ranging from Turkey to the Americas, from Northern Italy to Russia, featuring songs by Mikis Theodorakis, Ennio Morricone, Bertold Brecht, Hanns Eisler, Nazim Hikmet, Zulfi Livaneli, Brendan Behan, Joan Baez, and including a wealth of original contemporary material inspired by these writers. We take the audience on a stirring and inspiring journey through a multi-lingual culture of social commentary and resistance.
This is music for the head, heart and soul.
