The Time is Now

Whilst Greece is going through a crisis and while important decisions are being made concerning Greece and Europe, Athens’ streets of summer 2015 speak in sound. Street musicians are out on the streets, adding deliberate sound to the ‘natural’ buzz of the city, voicing themselves through the music and at the same being financially dependent on the music and their ‘audiences’. How is the crisis being felt economically and culturally? In the microcosmos of the Dionysou Areopaghitou Street in the ancient heart of Athens, street musicians reflect upon the current situation in Greece through music.
