Live at the Platea
Curated by Dimitris Tsakas

After two very successful years of Jazz at the Platea at the open-air space of Peiraios 260, the pocket-music festival that has become a meeting point for all the city’s music lovers takes on a new, expanded form. This year, it will host more musical acts showcasing a variety of musical styles, from jazz, funk, and soul to pop, Latin and electronic music.

Live performances will be taking place throughout the artistic programme of Peiraios 260 after performances, free of admission.


5, 6, & 7 June | MODE PLAGAL

Mode Plagal make their comeback with new compositions and unreleased yet covers of folk songs, in which tradition meets jazz, improvisation spontaneously flirts with sounds we all carry in our musical DNA, and the Mediterranean teams up with blues and Afrobeat.

Nefeli Fasouli is a talented young singer who stands out in spite of stylistic constraints and specifications. At the Festival she will be presenting for the first time her new jazz album Phases, for which she wrote the lyrics and music, and had it recorded last year in the US. The Nefeli Fasouli Quintet hovers over Greek music and jazz and is expected to showcase a captivating mosaic of songs both from her Phases album, as well as from O Kosmos Sou.

26, 27 & 29 June | MISSIGNO

The experimental electronic trio Missigno was formed in Athens in 2020 by Nicholas Wastor (synthesizers), George Constantinou (bass), and Jason Wastor (drums). The band’s core philosophy is largely based on thematic and abstract improvisation combined with original compositions. Their first album, Binary Digit Temple was released in 2020 and followed by Dystopian Reverie in 2022.

13, 14 & 15 July| MOb

MOb trio’s music can be described as pure escapism that comes in the form of electronic melodious jazz, kraut, filmic, and exploratory post punk. Synthesizers, effects, loops, drones, and frequent change of tone and style share prominent roles in creating the trio’s unparalleled soundscape.
Their compositions are primarily based on open forms, using both tonal and non-tonal linear material, while improvisation parts subtly balance between the generation of melodic material and the creation of multi-textural sonic atmospheres.
