Villagers Of Ioannina City – Age Of Aquarius
Villagers of Ioannina City (VIC) is a folk rock band from Ioannina, Greece, formed in 2007. They play post-, stoner and psychedelic rock with a large dose of Greek folk music from the region of Epirus. The regional musical tradition is characterized by polyphony, specific rhythms and tunes, and the use of clarinet, kaval, and bagpipe. The band fuses this unique folk music with modern psychedelic forms, creating a sound where the dominant solo instrument is the clarinet. In Age Of Aquarius, the band takes more risks and delivers an album with 10 songs, 6 of which are more than 8 minutes long. According to Rocking.gr, in this record they combine elements of reggae, blues & soul, heavy metal and psychedelic rock. Add the Greek folk elements that characterise their sound from day one and you have a daring but definitely interesting release.
