Savina Yannatou & Primavera en Salonico

Savina Yannatou & Primavera en Salonico

Thursday, 16 March 2023 ECHTERNACH


Dark-toned but ambrosial, highly disciplined yet seemingly bursting with a soul of pure flame, the rather staggering Athens-born singer Savina Yannatou is a virtuosic chameleon adept at an extensive range of vocal traditions (and languages) from the Mediterranean region – not just interpreting but leaping off from these old folk musics with a daring, exploratory technique and farflung tonal scope that allows her to stamp it all with a brash intelligence and some might say punky attitude..

John Payne, L.A. Weekly

Based on traditional material – mainly from the Mediterranean Area – Greec singer Savina Yannatou and the group Primavera en Salonico offer an open sound without borders or labels, from simple songs extending to contemporary music forms. 

Insisting on acoustic instruments, half of which have their origin in the East, they attempt at exploiting their specific sound, oftentimes also exploring them to the limits of their possibilities. Beyond her exquisite interpretive capacity Savina Yannatou gives special emphasis to the expression of the “music” of each different language, without letting that stop her from oftentimes using her voice as one more instrument. 

Countless raving reviews in press outlets all over the world, including the LA times, Frankfurter Allgemeine, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Independent, New York Times, and many more, are a witness to the wide acclaim of their work.
