Rebet Asker Greek Roots Series

Rebetika Unplugged

In today’s afternoon gathering we will perform songs we love across the pre- and post-war journey of rebetiko; songs we usually play at home gatherings amongst good friends while we share food, ouzo, raki and heartwarming smiles!

Rebet Asker was a restaurant/music venue which saw all the great Greek musicians and from the 20th century through to today pass through it. The walls of this little place in a small side street by Piraeus harbour have witnessed the history of the Greek Rebetiko as it has evolved over the last one hundred years. Some years have passed now, since it closed, but through this series of Sunday gigs we will do our best to recreate some of the magic of these musicians and their songs as it started and developed. Now in its 10th year, this tribute to the magical music of rebetiko, is the longest running series in London dedicated to this music. Come to hear classic songs and even some lesser known gems of great rebetiko musicians such as Toundas, Papazogklou, Skarvelis, Peristeris, Hadjichristos, Vamvakaris, Papaioannou, Tsitsanis, Mitsakis, Hiotis and more!

An afternoon of Greek Rebetiko for all the family…as you can see from the clip below!
