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.
