“Plastikes Karekles represent a culture of reinvention as defiant and hopeful as the music itself.”
Plastikes Karekles venture beyond rebetiko in a concert of Greek Retro music. The two greatest composers of this music are Souyioul and Attic, and we will be performing our favourite songs from both these composers. The music is beautifully lyrical and sentimental and included many tangos and boleros, which became a signature colour of this period and style of music. Come and enjoy our last performance of the season and head off into the summer with these infectious, soulful melodies dancing around your minds!
