World music vocal sensations, Greece’s Maria Farantouri and Israeli tenor Assaf Kacholi, unite for their first ever joint Australian tour. Their songs tell of love and passion, of melancholy and gaiety, of courage and sorrow, of war and of true peace. Songs full of strength and humanity, which have travelled the world.

Farantouri and Kacholi will shine a bright light into the hall of sombre memories, powerfully delivering the songs from Mikis TheodorakisThe Ballad of Mauthausen. Seventy-five years after the liberation of the concentration camps at Auschwitz, Mauthausen, Buchenwald, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen and elsewhere, these two artists commemorate the suffering, but above all the longing for life and the dreams for the future of millions of people.

Farantouri and Kacholi take us on a path through the world of poetry and song. A path that leads to the heart. This great musical event allows us to discover two singers with very different personalities, who have come together in the world of music.

To complete this special concert event, The Ballad of Mauthausen will be joined by a selection of Theodorakis’ most beautiful songs, including settings of poetry by Seferis, Elytis, Cavafy and Lorca in a tribute to Greece’s favourite composer as he approaches his 95th birthday.
