Cretan Glendi excites community ahead of Antipodes Weekend

Antipodes weekend got off to a roaring start on Friday the 28th of February with the Cretan community welcoming Giorgos Frantzeskakis and Giorgos Stratakis to perform.

Patrons from across the Cretan community came together to see the duo perform live and the Cretan Brotherhood hall and they the musicians didn’t disappoint, with music and dancing exciting all in attendance.

A joint performance of the Cretan Brotherhood and Pancretan dance groups launched the night, showcasing the skills of the musicians and dancers alike.It wasn’t long before the young musicians had everyone on their feet, with young and old soaking up a Cretan atmosphere to rival a traditional gendi.

Even with a big weekend ahead, no one wanted the night to end, and the kefi continued well into the early hours of the morning.
