Event Details

An evening of the most beautiful poetry from Greece set to music. Poetry of protest, rebellion, love and hope. With the album “Epitaphios” where Theodorakis set the heart breaking poetry of Ritsos to music using musicians and instruments born from the rebetiko era the barrier between underground music and “high art poetry” was broken. The collaborations that then followed between composers such as Markopoulos, Hadjidakis, Moutsis, Andrionopoulos, Tranoudakis and poets like Seferis, Elytis, Cavafy, Ritsos, Kazandzakis, set in motion a body of song that has become a treasure of Greek musical and literary culture. Tonight Plastikes Karekles perform a selection of songs from many composers and poets, with a recitation in English of the poems.

Organizer

Plastikes Karekles

Rebetiko Carnival is a UK registered charity that was formed in 2016. The core of the charity is a small group of musicians that over the past 10 years have dedicated their time playing for people less fortunate than themselves in hospitals, hospices, special needs residences, communal centers, and prisons, using Greek music as a therapy for those who need it.

 

Rebetiko is a rich synthesis of music from all over Greece,  Asia Minor, Ottoman modal art music, Byzantine chant, and cafe music. Rebetiko songs convey the pain and suffering of the people at the time, through war, poverty, and incarceration, as well as other deeply felt sentiments and aspects of everyday life.
