After a highly successful, 2-year run of the “Unplugged” Series in New York, Pericles Kanaris returns to DROM to celebrate its finale. This not-to-be-missed edition, will feature some of the best moments of the entire series, with multiple guests from the New York music scene.
In using only acoustic instruments, the “Unplugged" approach takes the listener back to the basics of the song, creating an intimate music setting that heightens audience participation. The repertoire is a mix of Kanaris originals and Greek classics arranged by the composer, blending his influences of contemporary Greek, American and orchestral music that have shaped his sound over the years.
“On vocals and piano, Kanaris recalls the great singer-songwriter tradition but with a distinct, timeless quality that is all his own.”
