SINGING WORKSHOP VOICES OF REBETIKO: MARIKA FRANTZESKOPOULOU with VANESSA KOURTESI

Description

Marika Frantzeskopoulou was one of the greatest vocalists of rebetiko music. She was Born in Istanbul in the end of 19th century and died in Athens, Greece. She has worked with great musicians of the time, such as the violinist Giannis Ogdontakis. She has recorded plenty of songs and improvisations and she also appears in discography as a composer. Marika Frantzeskopoulou handles her voice with great virtuosity and emotion and seems to have great knowledge both on technique and in musicality.
In this workshop we will study two pieces of Marika Frantzeskopoulou and we will enter her world of singing. The workshop applies to vocalists and to everyone who likes rebetiko or modal music and would like to deepen their knowledge about it.
The workshop will be taught by the vocalist Vanessa Kourtesi.

In 2021 she graduated from the world Music Department of Codarts, University of the Arts(Rotterdam), specialized in singing and with Education as a side subject.
