Greek Folk Music / Rembetiko
I am going to attend Dimitris Mystakidis's concert, if you enjoy this genre of music, feel free to join me :)
From Global Copenhagen Site:
"Dimitris Mystakidis is a virtuoso Greek folk guitarist. He has joined forces with the majority of Greek artists, but he has also a wide portfolio of concerts and workshops all over Europe. He has performed in world music festivals, in the opening ceremony of WOMEX Protected content in various European venues. With his band, he performs rembetiko arranged exclusively for folk guitar; a project to restore the merit of rembetiko – the perception that it is the music of the undergrounds is just a part of the story. Rembetiko itself, as a part of Greek urban folk music, carries a great artistic and musical value while Dimitris’ arrangement exclusively for folk guitar functions as a common “language” to diverse audiences."
