Dexamenis Square

Dexameni, Athens


The This is Athens – City Festival and the Voice Radio 102.5 present Bille Kark and Alkyone, two young voices of the Greek music scene, who will perform live at the Dexameni square in Kolonaki.

Billie Kark’s song “Party” was released in 2022 and recently went viral on TikTok. The young songwriter blends two of her favorite music genres: the traditional music and techno.

Alkyone, first introduced herself to the public with her arrangement of the traditional Greek song “Xenitemena mou poulia” (My emigrated birds), as well as with the English version of the song “Oh Mother”. Her compositions include indie sounds from the British folk and pop music, as well as elements of her relationship with the Greek music tradition.


Billie Kark is an artist based in Athens, Greece. Her musical vision is to set her imagination free to create something unusual and unexpected. She aspires to connect two very different musical genres: electronic music and Greek traditional songs. Being Greek, she likes to experiment with endogenous elements such as polyphony, Greek lyrics and idioms and sometimes local instruments. Things like nature, folklore tradition and magic have always been the source of her inspiration and her favorite topics to write about are freedom, death and rebirth. Her sound can be described as ambient and ethereal but also sometimes dark and mysterious. She enjoys combining sharp textures with soft and soothing vocals and melodies. During her performance, Billie hopes to transport us in a world full of mythical creatures, like fairies and other spirits of the forests and help us get lost in our imagination while dancing.

Alkyone is a multifaceted artist hailing from the picturesque mountains of Northern Greece. As a singer, songwriter, and musician, she navigates seamlessly between Greek and English languages, blending indie pop, cinematic, and folk elements into her unique musical tapestry. Drawing from her experience as a former choir member, Alkyone infuses her compositions with haunting choral arrangements, tapping into the primal and potent essence of collective voices. Her musical journey began in childhood, inspired by her father’s love for folklore music. Learning to play the piano alongside him, she eventually pursued formal training, earning a degree in classical piano. However, it wasn’t until later in life that she embraced her own songwriting prowess, crafting introspective and evocative pieces that echo her deep connection with nature and birds, a theme that also inspired her stage name.
Alkyone’s performances are a fusion of her original compositions and innovative arrangements of traditional Greek songs. She has graced stages alongside esteemed musicians like Maria Farantouri and Thanasis Papakonstantinou, captivating audiences across Greece and Europe with her distinct musical vision. In May 2023, Alkyone unveiled her debut full-length album, “Exit Sign,” which garnered widespread acclaim for its artistry and emotive depth. Beyond the realm of entertainment, Alkyone sees music as a catalyst for change, fervently believing in its capacity to shape ideas and influence the world at large. Through her introspective lyrics and stirring melodies, she endeavors to weave a narrative that resonates with listeners, inviting them to contemplate and connect with the transformative power of music.
