Description

Authentic sound of the Greek three-chord bouzouki. Virtuose musician Takis Mendis will show the mysterious and surprising meanders of the taxim, the improvisation on old oriental makams, that have always been important to Greek and east-Mediterranean music.
He is also a great singer and will present a programme from 1920 onwards, taking us back to the times of the Cafe Aman in Smyrna and Constantinople, and culminating in the impressive compositions by Tsitsanis and Chiotis. The precise program of this concert is decided on the last moment by the artists themselves, since an important part of this concert is improvisation.


Musicians:
Takis and fiends
