Monday November 7th was the day the Greek city of Eleusis launched it’s bid to become the next European city of culture. In collaboration with this project, Australian duo Dead Can Dance provided the city with a brand new theme song entitled “Eleusis“‘. Watch the official video below.

The video that goes along with “ELEUSIS” consists of various shots taken in the city of Eleusis during October 2016. The filmmaker Mari Shibata (London, UK), after having walking through Eleusis’ neighbourhoods, she captured city moments, inspired by the vision of Eleusis 2021 for the transition to EUphoria and “ELEUSIS” by Dead Can Dance. The aerial shots were taken by the Eleusinian Labros Dovinos.
