For this exclusive concert the quartet will perform tabachaniotika, traditional Cretan songs and dances, as well as original compositions. Tabachaniotika is considered the rebetika of Crete, an amalgam of Eastern Mediterranean music with the native folk music of the island. This concert is a unique opportunity to hear this lesser-known branch of rebetiko, with songs of love, life and existential grief.



Kalia – vocals, nay, thiaboli
Vassilis Chatzimakris – lyra, mandolin
Nikos Ziarkas – laouto
Theodoris Ziarkas – double bass
