Tribute to Markos Vamvakaris, ‘The Patriarch of Rebetiko’ in London

February 3, 2018

Born on the island of Syros n 1905, from the humblest of roots, Markos Vamvakaris became revered as the Patriarch of Rebetiko music. His unique simple way of playing the bouzouki and his deep, earthy, “metallic” voice became the iconic sound of Rebetiko music.

“We all, we are but branches of a tree. Markos is that tree” – Mikis Theodorakis

The Rebetiko Carnival musicians will present a programme of his greatest songs as well as lesser known gems. The music will be preceded by a short talk about the life of Markos Vamvakaris (speaker: Noonie Minogue)
