Ancient Greek Music and Board Games

What to Expect

I am going to make a presentation of all the types of ancient Greek lyres (the lyre of Sappho, the lyre of Hermes, the Cithara of the Golden Age, the Phorminx of the time of Ulises and more) but, mostly, I am going to play and listen in real time the differences and the beauty of sound of all these ancient music instruments. I am going to talk about Hermes and Apollo, the Ancient Greek music system and the oldest surviving melody, the Epitaph of Seikilo. Whats more, I am going to play ancient Greek board games but also listen to the famous (contemporary) Greek bouzouki and a bendir (one of the oldest type of percussions). I am going to combine academic research and study with Mythology using the universal language of Music.

The team behind Seikilo have done such an amazing work to bring to us all the history of ancient Greek music and instruments. We visited this place on our recent family trip to Thessaloniki and I can definitely say that it was an amazing experience!...More

As a professional musician knowledgeable in early music, I couldn't be more surprised to find what Seikilo offers in such a modest establishment. The instruments are well researched; they look lovely and sound amazing. Theodore gave us a pleasant and accessible tour which everyone enjoyed...More
