GENESIS | 8-19 August 2018

“What comes of a Catharsis? A Genesis of a new identity, of a new self with renewed hope and a new direction in life. With that comes a whole new set of challenges but also opportunities that need to be explored. That is the path we would like to embark on musically during the 4rth Molyvos International Music Festival. We are looking forward to it!”
