Butterfly – Vassilis Ketentzoglou & Sofia Labropoulou – Guitar and Kanun Duet

Versatile Greek musicians Vassilis Ketentzoglou and Sofia Labropoulou have created a repertory for this unprecedented combination, resulting in a new and fresh musical soundworld; a meeting of minds and cultures. These musicians have found innovative ways to blend contrasting musical worlds: the guitar sometimes becomes an ‘Eastern’ solo instrument, playing microtonal melodies and using Middle Eastern ornamentation, and the kanun becomes like a ‘Western’ instrument, playing chords or even counterpoint. The album’s eponymous Butterfly symbolises bringing these instruments out of their cocoon, emerging into a colourful world in which guitar and kanun do not simply co-exist but blossom together as one.
