Deli Teli – Tsifteteli Club > new release on Rebel Up Records, greek psychedelic tsifteteli grooves

Mini album by Greek-French group Deli Teli, who revisit Tsifteteli bouzouki music of 60’s/70’s Greece in a groovy psychedelic sound.


New release since 05.11 on Rebel Up in collaboration with Catapulte Records (who brought you Guess What, Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek, Orchestre Montplaisant)

Bongos, bouzouki and Farfisa organ galore ! The explosive cocktail of rock’n’roll and traditional Tsifteteli hailing from 1960’s Greece is still alive thanks to Deli Teli: the Marseille-based quartet performs a string of forgotten hits that once set Athens on fire, with a contagious energy and a subtle dose of Mediterranean drama.

Far from being an exclusive Greek sound, Tsifteteli music has travelled through borders for centuries and means ‘double string’ in Turkish. In the 1960’s, it mixed with rock’n’roll, surf and Latin-american influences, and gave birth to the typical Laïko sound.

With their powerful electric bouzouki (Greek lute) and the distinctive sound of the Farfisa organ, Deli Teli have carved their style while digging through the incredible goldmine of the late 60’s and early 70’s Tsifteteli/Laïko singles. The 4 musicians met in 2019 with a burning desire to dive into electric sensations – bassist Christos Karypidis used to play oud and keyboardist Arthur Bacon played accordion in most of his former projects – and made the most of 2020’s lockdowns by building their repertoire and thinking up Deli Teli.

On this mini-album, they interpret Aris San’s psychedelic 60’s twist song “Boum Pam” as well as Koko’s “Chily Chily”, a groovy belly-dance mover; “Ekso Dertia Kai Kaïmi” an intoxicating and frenetic floor shaker ; “Tsiftetelli 1969”, a cool organ-lead surfing instrumental ; and 2 slightly freer and more psychedelic compositions, “Taksim Deli” (improvisation) and “Bournelis”, a creative re-arrangement of 2 compisitions by Leonardos Bournelis.

Vinyl available now as pre-order for 12€ (delivery date early January)

Sat 1 June: Rebel Up warmup @ Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek, Ekko, Utrecht

Cosmosis presents a series of concerts with the most special pop music from non-Western countries. What can you expect? No traditional world music, but urgent and danceable future music from distant countries.

Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek
Two years after the great success of the single “Nem Kaldi”, psych-pop sensation Derya Yildirim & Grup Şimşek finally released the long-awaited debut album “Kar Yağar” on Bongo Joe Records. And it was well worth the wait! The distinctive sound of the bağlama, the great voice of Derya Yildirim and the band makes the whole more modern, more danceable and more psychedelic. A hymn for the rich history of the Anatolian folk rock, restored and translated into the 21st century. They are coming to Ekko Utrecht just a week after the album comes out. Not to be missed!


Warmup & cooling down tunes in Turkish, Anatolian and Levantine sounds by Rebel Up SebCat.

Wedn 23 Aug > Rebel Up dj @ Feeërieen w/ Mdou Moctar (NE) & Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek (TR/FR)

Feeërieen festival @ Parc Royale, organised by Ancienne Belgique.

2 concerts > Niger desert rock to groovy psych-pop from Anatolia + Rebel Up dj support

Mdou Moctar
Thanks to label boss Christopher Kirkley, who can easily be described as the modern day Alan Lomax, Sahel Sounds has also become one of those unmissable benchmarks. To him we owe the discovery of Les Filles De Illigahdad (recently catchy at BRDCST) and the desert blues of Mdou Moctar. On his debut, Mdou Moctar further distinguished himself from other Touareg acts, like Bombino or Tinariwen, by the striking use of the auto-tune. Live, Mdou Moctar mostly sounds raw and extremely energetic. Moctar also provided the music for the very first Touareg film ‘Akounkounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai’ about a young musician who wants to make it big. Fun Fact: the film was a remake of ‘Purple Rain’. He just has released his new allbum ‘Sousoume Tamachek‘ on Sahel Sounds. Desert power!

Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek.
At the 10 years of Rebel Up / Nightshop party in Recyclart, some of you already had the good fortune of seeing Derya & Grup Simsek play. Hearing the voice of Derya Yildirim, it only takes a few seconds until your soul willingly allows itself to be bowled over. This singer/multi-instrumentalist namely possesses a unique voice that exudes both melancholy and longing. Musically, she is accompanied by Grup Şimşek that excels with its hypnotic Anatolian psych-pop. Let’s just say: a smooth mix of Turkish folk, grooves and psychedelica. Aside from own compositions, Derya Yildirim also interprets gems by Turkish artists like (protest)singer Selda Bağcan, rock pioneer Barış Manço, Moğollar (founding father of Turkish folk rock) and the Turkish poet Nazım Hikmet. A piece of trivia for the benefit of your inner joy: those who fall for the sound of Derya Yildirim, will also love Altin Gün who is to perform at Global Street Sounds (17.09.2017) in AB, curated by Rebel Up & AB.

DJ support by Rebel Up SebCat, expect sahel guitars, indian grooves, oriental psyche and much more.
