Five musicians from five countries, Portugal, Greece, France, Brazil, met in Ponte de Sor to make music together. The result of their collective work in the Centrum Sete Sois Sete Luas is a program of dance songs and themes that bring together, not only the different cultures of the countries from where these musicians came, but also harmoniously combine the Past with the Future: a very interesting mixture of old musical instruments from the medieval times with the modern trance-electronica elements.

Kristi Stassinopoulou: singing, story telling
Stathis Kalyviotis: laouto, electronics
Fernando Meireles: mandolin, sanfona (hurdy – gurdy)
Fernandito Meireles: violin
Roberto di Mello: traditional & electronic percussions,

Greek singer Kristi Stassinopoulou and Stathis Kalyviotis,with his Greek traditional lute and his electronic laboratory, are the cultural “leaders” of this collective work. The 11 years old violin player Fernandito and his father, Fernando Meireles, one of the most important luthiers of Portugal, add the wonderful music-colors of the violin, the mandolin and the hurdy-gurdy. And the franco-brazilian percussionist Roberto di Mello with a set of percussions from all over the world, they all together promise to fly us.
