About the event
In the early decades of the 20th century, a lot of musicians from different parts of Greece and the East, flednfrom their homes and met in Athens to give birth to rembetiko, the music of the underground, and some of the very first recordings came from refugees in America. In the late 30s, most of rembetiko songs were censored by the dictatoric state, for the content of the lyrics and the music idiom. Musicians were chased in the streets by the police, when carrying an instrument. Bouzouki, baglamas and folk guitar were the main instruments in the early recordings. This is what we're going to perform and try to capture the atmoshepe of the old tekes. Guitar/Vocals : Ilias Konstantinidis Bouzouki/Baglamas : Argiris Papadimitriou Bouzouki : Yiannis Leloudas
