Afrodyssey Orchestra are an instrumental ensemble from Athens, Greece, comprising seven established musicians of diverse musical backgrounds. They came together through a series of musical journeys over the years — and officially as Afrodyssey Orchestra from 2013. The band’s influences span Jazz, Funk, Psychedelic, traditional West African dance music and percussion as well as the Greek musical culture. Their infectious style stems from an experimental conversation between these different musical forms and traditions. Afrodyssey is unique in Europe for their use of Greek and West African musical forms together and their sound — an expression of contemporary Athens. In devising and performing compositions Afrodyssey seek to evoke communion between audience and music, transmitting the impulse to move – an intention that reconnects to the origins of Greek music as a process that gave a village social cohesion. In addition to their original compositions, the band performs innovative versions of well-known African and Greek traditional music. Most band members are multi-instrumentalists — lesser-known instruments played include the Kamelen Ngoni, a type of African harp, and the Balafon, an ancestor of the Marimba and Vibraphone. Afrodyssey Orchestra are: Konstantinos Arvanitis – Guitar, composition, musical arrangement Vassilios Ikonomidis – Percussion, Balafon Leandros Fratnik – Drums Vasilis Papastamopoulos – Bass Narayan Protin – Djembe, Percussion, Kamelen Ngoni Panagiotis Raptis – Alto saxophone Thodoris Rellos – Tenor Saxophone First pressing limited to 600 hand-numbered copies, housed in a foldout die-cut sleeve.
