Part of Rebetiko Carnival 2016, with ‘Action Esti’ band.
‘Arhontorebetika’ style became a very popular genre in Greek music in the 1950s and 1960s being a cross between Rebetiko and the ‘light’ music, both equally popular at the time. Its upbeat rhythm, light-hearted themes and easy-listening tunes were loved by all social classes and served by composers from both genres. In this concert we will play the all-time classics of ‘Arhontorebetika’ and the short introduction will provide some information on this style of music.
Antreas Theodorou – bouzouki
Evaggelia Giamaiou – vocals
