Afrodyssey Orchestra are an instrumental ensemble from Athens, Greece comprising six established musicians of diverse musical backgrounds. They came together through a series of musical journeys over the years - and officially as Afrodyssey Orchestra since February 2013. The band’s influences span Jazz, Funk, Psychedelic, traditional West African dance music and percussion and 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 and lesser-known instruments played include the Kamelen Ngoni, a type of African harp, and the Balafon, an ancestor of the Marimba and Vibraphone.
The band has built a strong following in Greece with a reputation for exceptional musicianship. Their concerts are in demand in Athens, captivating the wider audience and the more discerning music crowd.
Afrodyssey Orchestra are:
Konstantinos Arvanitis – Guitar
Vassilios Ikonomidis – Percussion, Balafon, Keyboard
Christos Konstantinidis - Drums
Vasilis Papastamopoulos – Bass
Narayan Protin – Djembe, Congas, Kamelen Ngoni
Thodoris Rellos – Saxophones
