Musiikkitalon Talvijamit tuo musiikin riemua lapsille ja lomalaisille hiihtolomaviikon jokaisena päivänä – täysin maksutta!
When singer Chrysa Panagiotopoulou and piano player Merve Abdurahmani first heard each other playing, they were instantly drawn to the idea of forming a duo. Their very expressive approach to the folk melodies blended with influences from all over the world, evokes the beauty of the Mediterranean in a very unique way. Fresh arrangements of familiar folk tunes and balkan melodies combined with the element of improvisation form a powerful performance. The audience is introduced to the eastern modes and is invited to interact and familiarize with the uneven rhythms of the south.

The newly-founded duo is based in Helsinki and first performed at Global Music Festival of Sibelius Academy in 2019. Their first single album is expected in 2020.
