SOLD OUT: GIDIKI GREEK FOLK- REBETIKO/TRADITIONAL

Description

Gidiki is a band based in Thessaloniki (Greece).

It was formed in 2014 and since that time it has given numerous gigs in Thessaloniki and many shows all around Greece. References to traditional music and rembetiko are interwoven with those of modern creation.

In 2014 Tasos Kofodimos, together with Konstantinos Lazos, Konstantis Papakonstantinou and Christos Danas started to experiment on several traditional songs from all around Greece, starting to develope their own approach in reforming traditional vibes and as a result they started rehearshing in a professional level and produce their own and unique performing style which was unexpectably welcomed by the domestic audience and in a short while they managed to be able to address to foreign stages.

As the members of the band are multi instrumentalists they use different instruments (Greek lute, bouzouki, clarinet, Greek bagpipe, guitar, violin, percussion) giving a variety of sounds that can cover a many traditional Greek songs, merging vibes from different Greek regions.

They already have cooperated with well known artists such as Thanassis Papakonstantinou, Matoula Zamani, Hainides, Villagers of Ioannina City, Spyros Grammenos, Vaso Vasileidou and others.

The lead singer of the band Tasos Kofodimos and Konstantis Papakonstantinou are also members of the band ‘Largo’, and both of them have their own musical route through cinematic soundtracks, documentaries etc.

Konstantinos Lazos is also a member of the Greek rock band named ‘Villagers of Ioannina City’ (V.I.C) and he also played with bands like Largo, Sleeping Pillow, Baildsa , TAU etc.

Thodoris Sioutis also has a great classical route so far and he is said to become a very promised musician.

A few words about Greek traditional music: For a small country like Greece, the variety of different music kinds is impressive. From village to village, island to island, really big differences are observed in the traditional songs. Differences in rhythm, instruments, harmonies and scales. These musical idioms have no author and have nothing to do with any intellectual properties. There are anonymous creations that came out of the need of people to express joy, to have fun, to dance, or to lament. They travelled through the ages as a heritage of farmers, builders, immigrants, just by listening (at least at the beginning), usually in the local coffeehouses and the local feasts. Now they reach our ears as a heritage from the ages of our grandparents. Its basic subject matters are immigration, death, love and marriage.

The Gidiki members are:

Tasos Kofodimos: bouzouki, lute, vocals
Konstantinos Lazos: clarinet, bagpipe, guitar, vocals
Kostantis Papakonstantinou: percussion
Thodoris Sioutis: violin
