Amalgamation:
1. The act of amalgamating or the condition resulting from this act.
2. A  consolidation or merger, as of several corporations.
3.  A  cocktail of musical influences, traditions, experiences, colours and sounds, creating a cross-cultural bridge    connecting the ancient with the modern.

The Amalgamation project was created by Vasiliki Anastasiou, a Greek-Cypriot vocalist and composer based in Nicosia/Cyprus.  The project’s heart is around her compositions. It also borrows and re-arranges traditional melodies from countries around the shores of the Mediterranean Sea but also from the whole of the Balkan peninsula.

The Amalgamation project is more of a musical process than a band… a collective of musicians sharing the vision of music with no borders (physical nor mental) and getting together to just play; Vasiliki invites guest musicians from different backgrounds usually jazz, classical and folk, to share musical thoughts and experiment with the blend…Vasiliki is also the creator and conductor of Amalgamation choir. An all-female a capella choir that is the off-spring of the project. Check choir page.
