(View all musical performances »)

En Chordais is one of the most internationally acclaimed and exceptional music ensembles specializing in the traditions of Mediterranean music. The ensemble presents a wide and unique range of mixed classical and contemporary compositions. With this extensive repertoire and a playful, lively presence on stage, En Chordais has toured throughout the world, receiving enthusiastic critical acclaim.

The ensemble celebrates the Byzantine musical heritage, Greek folk music, the works of major Mediterranean composers, as well as compositions by its members and a creative continuation of this great heritage. Of particular importance in the repertoire is the application of Kyriakos Kalaitzidis' (En Chordais' artistic director) research findings in manuscript codices from the 15th-19th century, which are preserved in several historical libraries of Europe.
