Sofia Sarri @Mezrab
Date: Sat 10.11 Time: 20:00 - 23:30
Mezrab is proud to present Greece’s most eclectic: Sofia Sarri
Sofia Sarri has been a pioneer for the greek indie scene for the past 15 years, touring and releasing albums with her band Night on Earth and has now yet stepped forward for the first time as a solo artist, releasing her debut album “Euphoria” on January 2017, under Inner Ear Records. Both “Euphoria” and her live shows have so far received exquisite reviews growing attention.
Her unique sound and arrangements bring together elements of greek folk, distorted micro-beats and echoes of Scandinavian avant-garde metal, and encompass her voice’s mournful belts with a genuine originality and emotion.
Sarri’s music is an unconventional universe where uncompromised resolutions are allowing the Cretan lyra, a distinct folk instrument from the mountains of her home island Crete, to feel at ease when placed together with the analog synth, the vibraphone and some wicked double bass drumming. As a child of the greek crisis Sofia is working against the odds.

“Sofia Sarri makes gothic folk music with cretan Lyra and analog synth”
“Delivering a very universal sound ala pop that comes through with avant garde shell, Greece’s own Sofia Sarri. […] Reaching Euphoria with Sofia Sarri”
“Euphoria contains nine songs, beginning with “Kira Kitana” where Sofia brings in life a magnificent song, accompanied by mysterious music; “Still Universe” follows and a sad sound is presented to me, with a great tempo, and light influences from trip-hop, metal and Eastern music.”

“They say that “art should have no boundaries, no red lines”. One of the finest examples of this statement is Sofia”
