Grammy Nominated DEORO, Cellist Dave Eggar and Percussionist Chuck Palmer, join forces with Award Winning songwriter Rachael Sage and scientist turned chef, Peter Giannakas of Astoria's Greek restaurant OVELIA Psistaria/ BAR(FoodNetworks Chopped) to create MusiKitchen.

Together this innovative team fuses the worlds of live cooking and music in a flavorful adventure of cuisine, classical music, jazz, groove and original songs created on the spot. The sounds of the kitchen erupt into beats and recipes burst into song as these versatile artists cook up an infectious musical stew demonstrating the parallels of virtuosity and improvisation essential to both cooking and music. Experimental video artist THE DLP compliments the ensemble with live video mixing showing the Chef's Greek roots both cultural, in the kitchen, and the inner world of restaurant and concert hall as the lives of the musicians and Chef's blur revealing a startling ending!
