Icons of Greek Music: Theodorakis, Hadjidakis, Xarhakos

Sunday 19h May 2024 @ Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity

The songs of these great composers have been filling concert halls, tavernas and households for the last 60 years. Through the beautiful melodies, traditional folk rhythms and lyrics written by some of Greece’s greatest poets (Seferis, Gatsos, Ritsos), they have become a part of Greece’s cultural DNA.

George Tsolakis: Guitar, voice 

Pavlos Carvalho: Bouzouki, cello, double bass

GeorgeAngelopoulos: Bouzouki, mandolin, baglama

“These musicians represent a culture of reinvention as defiant and hopeful as the music itself.” 

–Song Lines magazine
