Sofia Efklidou is a musician who can easily move from baroque and classical western forms of music, to contemporary and improvisational and the idiom of world music. She studied at the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki, the Music Academy of Cologne, Trinity College of Music and the music workshop Labyrinthos. She has given concerts in various parts of the world. She has collaborated with numerous musicians and singers. She has participated in performances at the National Theatre, at the Onassis Stegi, the Greek National Opera and the Camerata. In her set at KET, starting from the classical origins of the cello and the use of the instrument in the traditions of the eastern Mediterranean, a meditative spiral is set up, where layers of harmonies, melodies, groovy bass lines and patterns are added to the sound of the solo instrument with the help of loops.

The multi-instrumentalist and composer George Dousos studied classical flute at the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki and the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam, he studied clarinet at the Athens Conservatory and composition at the composition workshop of the National Theatre. He is a founding member of the groups Local Heroes, Darnakes, Rom Royale. His solo project consists of an alternation of soundscapes, rhythmic pieces and lyrical melodies. He uses two monophonic instruments – the flute and the clarinet -, a loop station and sound effects.
