Pangéo plays on the Green
The latest in a six-part series of free world music concerts sponsored by Vashon Folkdancers and Vashon Park District will take place at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 19, at the Village Green. The concert will spotlight Pangéo, a world-renowned Greek ensemble led by multi-instrumentalist Christos Govetas.
According to concert organizer Martin Koenig, the Seattle-based quartet “offers a sound that will transport you to another world” — including ballads from the mountains of Epiros in Greece, lively tunes from the Bulgarian, Yugoslavian and Albanian border areas and Roma dances from the Gypsy quarters in Macedonia. Pangéo’s instrumentation includes clarinet, accordion, guitar, percussion, voices and bouzouki.
The family-friendly concert will start out with folk dance instructions. No partner or experience is needed to participate in the dancing.
