Kinisi will host its first event at the Katharos Lounge, Oia, Santorini. We have invited Ilir Lluka and the band Kristal from Tirana, Albania. Ilir Lluka is a writer, sound artist and composer. He creates 'soundworks built through a textural combination of processed field-recordings, electronic sounds, and acoustic instruments.' The members of clarinet led quintet Kristal were once part of the renowned ensemble Migjeni, in 1997 they formed Kristal, they have participated in many national and international festivals following the beat of traditional Albanian wedding music. We met both Ilir and the members of Kristal on our last research trip to Albania, we were fascinated by the work Ilir was doing and charmed by the liquid sound of Kristal's music.
