The Yurodny-Myriada Project was a collaborative exchange between the Dublin-based Yurodny and the Cretan-based Myriada Ensembles. Led by Paul Goodman, the Myriada Ensemble featured leading vocalist Maria Koti (Hainides), neyzen Nikos Paralouakis (Alkinoos Ioannidis, Socrates Malamas).
The project focused on a sharing of repertoire and included public-facing workshops on Maqam, Improvisation and Cultural Practices held in the Goethe Institute, as well a national tour of Ireland. The work was documented in an 8-part documentary, produced by Army of Id.
The Irish Times wrote of the Meeting House Square concert that "the music emerged triumphant, vibrant and irresistable."
