SEMF explore Early Christmas Music from around the world! Be part of an excursion to the Kalanta-tradition of Greece (related to the word "calender"), implying old narrating Christmas- or New Years eve's songs. Kalanta used to be sung by children who went from door to door which is still a part of Christmas celebrations in Greece, today.  The IHOS ensemble, led by musicologist Vassilis Varelas and with singer Katerina Konstantinou spread this Christmas and New Year eve's atmosphere, with a modal flavour of the Mediterranean Sea.
