Rebetiko Festival: Homage to the Greek Blues

Rebetiko, (Greek Blues), was created in the hash dens of Piraeus 100 years ago by Greek refugees from Asia Minor.

It has over the decades become a globally respected musical style. Rebetiko is the music of passion, pain and love. It is a tapestry woven of Byzantine, Turkish, Roma, and Jewish and other musical forms.

Pliri Ntaxei and Chrysoula K & Purpura from Greece and Melbourne performers will create a melodious symposium.

Supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Grants Program, The Greek Centre for Contemporary Culturee, Greek Festival of Sydney, Victorian Multicultural Commission & Neos Kosmos Media

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre, Con Kalamaras and Kape Communications
