Using violin, voice, clarinet, Greek lute (laouto), and percussion, Agapi Mou takes you on a listening tour of the diverse regional styles found in Greek music. Stops on the itinerary include the islands of Crete, Rhodes, Amorgos, Ikaria, Mytillini, as well as the mainland regions of Thrace, Macedonia, Epirus, and the Peloponnese.

LECTURE: "Tracing Patterns of Textiles in Ancient Java (8th-15th Century)"

Goddess Parwati, 14th century Java
October 10, 2015 -
10:00am11:30am

From the past to the present, textile art is one of the most important cultural expressions throughout the Indonesian archipelago. There is, however, a virtual absence of physical evidence of textiles prior to the 16th century. But despite this lack of material evidence, a plethora of textile depictions are carved on stone and metal statues as well as temple reliefs. These include images of banners, pillows, throne covers, wall hangings, and clothing; some are embellished with patterns, others blank. Of any carved images, the most prevalent by far falls into the category of clothing.
