Babis Papadopoulos returns to the SNFCC Lighthouse for the live premiere of his latest release, Fables of the Useless, alongside the talented musicians of Babis Papadopoulos Acoustic Set.

The accomplished composer and guitarist has released one more solo album, which fully justifies his reputation as a multifaceted creative music artist. Although he already has various album releases under his belt as a solo artist, a large number of original compositions for theater, dance and cinema, as well as a number of collaborations (Trypes, Heimerinoi Kolymvites, Christos Yermenoglou, Thanasis Papakonstantinou etc.), Babis Papadopoulos never ceases to push the boundaries of genres in each successive release.

Embarking on a process of exploration of his creative tools, sound, approach and media in his new album, Fables of the Useless, the constantly evolving artist manages to subvert his own work in ten new instrumental tracks that tread the fine line between traditional Greek and Balkan music and ambient soundscapes.
