Singer-songwriter Leon of Athens and his band will give a not-to-be-missed concert at the Garden of Peiraios 260. The audience will enjoy covers of popular Greek songs and world hits, as well as songs from Leon’s newest album Xenos (Minos Emi, 2018). Leon of Athens and his band will be supported by an ensemble of 25 women vocalists singing a cappella and drawing on diverse music styles from around the world. Leon of Athens’s first album, Futrue, put him on the map. His sophomore album, Global, got rave reviews from international media (Guardian, New York Times, BBC, NME). The acclaimed Greek composer Alexandros Livitsanos, with many collaborations with Greek and international musicians under his belt, will do the arrangements.
