Rebet Asker Greek Roots Series: Rebetiko and Beyond

Monday 27th May 2024 @ The Green Note

rebetiko and beyond

Take a journey through Rebetiko’s history from 1919 to 1952, as we explore its evolution. In the first part, immerse yourself in the timeless tunes featured in the iconic movie ‘To Rebetiko’. This cinematic gem vividly brings to life the essence of Rebetiko, often dubbed the Greek blues, offering a glimpse into the soulful melodies and rich cultural heritage of this genre. Acclaimed Greek actress Sotiria Leonardou, alongside director Costas Ferris, invites you to follow the captivating journey of Marika, a Rebetiko singer whose poignant tale mirrors the soulful resonance of the music itself. Born from the ashes of Smyrna’s tragedy, Marika’s narrative echoes the resilience and passion of a culture shaped by adversity.

At the second part of the performance, we’ll play songs beyond the ‘To Rebetiko’ movie, influenced by Minor Asia sounds and Smyrneiko spirit. We’ll showcase how Rebetiko has continued to evolve and captivate audiences across the globe. Let the love of music and your soul transport you to a world where every chord resonates with the echoes of generations past. Join us for an unforgettable evening of music and don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to experience the soul-stirring magic of Rebetiko. Secure your tickets now and be part of a musical journey unlike any other.
