Mantares

Mantares is an acoustic music band, created during the spring of 2016, dealing with the traditional music of Greece and generally eastern mediterranean region. Songs and melodies, blurred by "antara", the fog of Cretan mountains, grow as Kozani mushrooms called "mantares", are getting wet by the Aegean Sea and tangle as like the blurred waters of the Egyptian mandara. The band to his live appearances, sometimes approaches the mysticism of sedentary songs and greek "amane", and sometimes the ecstasy of feasting and dancing, often by escaping from the paths of the traditional form.​Mantares is an acoustic music band, created during the spring of 2016, dealing with the traditional music of Greece and generally eastern mediterranean region.
