What’s in a name?
An ‘aulos’ (Ancient Greek: αὐλός, plural αὐλοί, auloi) or tibia (Latin) was an ancient Greek wind instrument, depicted often in art and also attested by archaeology.
The ancient Roman equivalent was the tibicen (plural tibicines), from the Latin tibia, "pipe, aulos." The earliest surviving examples of auloi have been found at Koilada, Thessaly and date from the Neolithic period (c. 5000 BCE).
MUSICA et POETICA
Marjan Hellraeth started to organise concerts and word performances in 2003 in the cosy setting of a living room under the name of MUSICA et POETICA.
MUSICA et POETICA vzw supports young talent, stimulates quality arts and brings it in the intimate setting of a home. The spectator enjoys inspiring performances at a professional level in a particular context.
