You don’t have to be a coffee lover to join – although you might as well be one – but you do have to love the Ney!
NeyCafé is a 2 hours long online meeting point, organised irregularly, some weeks yes, some weeks nop, where everyone is welcome: Ney players, other musicians & instrumentalists or simply people interested in the instrument and the music it plays and the music it can play!
Every meeting will be unique in the sense that i might propose a specific piece to study, or a new composition or even work on improvisation or something else that pops in mind; the topic might as well come from the participants in a form of a comment, question etc. so it’s an open meeting, like a coffee one
Other topics we might or might not touch are: makam, modality, sound and timbre textures, dynamics, improvisation, taksim, inspiration, contemporary modal compositions, classical, folk and devotional musics from greece, turkey and the middle east. Anyway the idea is to make music and hopefully have a nice time learning new things, not only having… coffee!

Please let me know in advance that you are coming and have your camera on during the session, participants with closed cameras will not be accepted as we don’t want to have coffee with black screens!
A 15e donation is suggested per session and it can be made using the donation button at https://christosbarbas.com/contact/ however, no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds.
I appreciate your contribution at any level.
PM me if you have any further questions
