An evening with ‘Arhontorebetika’

Thanasis Gavos   Wednesday, 15 June 2016; doors open at 7. 30pm, music starts at 8pm
Archontorebetika, Rebetiko Carnival,

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.
