“Once upon a time in Africa, there was a young child. His name was Song and he was friends with the beautiful fairies called Notes. For centuries, the drums and sounds tamed people and wild beasts while a magician named “Rhythm” was in charge.”
On stage, a piano, a double bass, a saxophone and percussions, four renowned musicians led by conductor Alexandros Christidis, a four-member dance ensemble choreographed by Anouka Oikonomou and four actors, directed by Panagiotis Spiliopoulos.
