Savina Yannatou has been spreading it around a bit for some time now. The 55-year-old Greek singer, who will star in the closing show of this year’s Oud Festival in Jerusalem, appears to be proficient in numerous areas of musical endeavor, and she sings in quite a few languages as well.

Yannatou will front the concert, which will take place at the Jerusalem Theater on November 15, where she will perform with her long-standing band Primavera en Solonico (Spring in Salonika). It is a fitting climax to the 15th installment of the Oud Festival, which takes place under the auspices of Confederation House and its director Effie Benaya.
