March 30: Between Euterpe and Aurora: How the Greek Myths Live in Contemporary Music

Ancient mythologies are alive in the contemporary world and continue to inspire artists and musicians. This lecture will offer a look into the interpretations and reinterpretations of Greek mythos in contemporary popular (or not-so-popular) music. Together, we will listen to the reconstructions of ancient hymns and wonder why so people from different countries and cultures still listen to the Greek tales from thousands of years ago?
