The residency aims at unravelling different music traditions such as those of Greece, Cyprus, Africa, New Orleans and Ireland.

Just like the rest of the performances, this concert will take place SEK parking lot, found behind the theatre, at 9pm and although free, tickets must be obtained beforehand either online or from Rialto’s box office.
