A music tribute to “rembetiko” Greek song of 30s – 40s with Sotiris Karageorgis, Stelios Cacoyannis and Evagoras Karageorgis, for two evenings at Technopolis 20, on Friday, 23rd of December and on Wednesday, 28th of December at 8pm.
After the Asia Minor Catastrophe of 1922, the Greek folk song, grafted by the colors and perfumes of Smyrna composers, took an unprecedented rise. Many composers / songwriters and many different musical styles developed. Everyone in his own way, put his own stamp on tunes, rhythms and lyrics, creating a primary musical material that has nothing to envy from the music of the same period in America or Europe.
The decades of 1930 to 1940 will give some of the most beautiful songs of the century. In this material will later step on Theodorakis, Xarchakos and Hadjidakis, to continue to other levels of the Greek music miracle.
Within the range of these two decades we will listen songs written by: Toundas, Papaioannou, B. Papazoglou Chatzichristos, Vamvakaris, Genitsaris, Skarvelis, Bagianteras, Roukounas, Ntalgkas, Bakalis, Tsitsanis and Mitsakis.
Entrance: 8 euro
