23 Mnisikleous Str., Athens
Yasemi is a vocal ensemble that consists of four musicians coming from the Greek folk music scene.
All members are both singers and instrumentalists, and transfer their experience of playing folk instruments, onto the voice. Their repertoire consists of folk melodies arranged for a capella ensemble, and new music that follows the modes of Eastern Music. Combining traditional melodies with contemporary harmony, Yasemi focuses on the vocal traditions of Greece, the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean, experimenting with the multiple role of the voice in a rich musical tradition.
Yasemi are: Irini Derebei, Maria Melachrinou, Martha Mavroidi, Tasos Poulios
