This special night will begin in full rebetika style… plus let ´s also support the social protests in Istanbul at Taksim in sound!
The Kazatzikis (GR/ A’dam)
live show by Greek duo The Kazatzikis. Rebetika is the Greek blues from the 20’s and 30’s of last century, sung by Greek immigrants that were kicked out of Asia Minor and Turkey during the wars. Rebetika songs are all about the hard life of an immigrant in the harbours and ghettos of Thessaloniki and Athens, with heavy and dark lyrics that touch drugs, poverty, love drama’s and prostitution. The Kazatzikis will play these old sounds to bring us back to the times of immigrant woes and economic crisis, perhaps a familiar parallel to the present times. Their set will begin around 23:30, so please arrive on time!
