Diaspora and Rebetiko Music

Co-organised with Konstantinos Trimmis and the Society for Modern Greek Studies.

Join us for an evening dedicated to exploring the songs and music of the Greek diasporic world with the Rebetiko Carnival ensemble. The Rebetiko Carnival musicians are a group brought together by the Rebetiko Carnival festival, representing some of the UK’s most beloved Greek bands. For this evening’s performance, they bring together musicians from Plastikes Karekles, Amalgama, and the Icons of Greek Music project. They have performed at festivals in Greece, France, Italy, Scotland, Wales and Qatar. In the UK they have performed at the Purcell Room, Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, St David’s Hall as part of the Proms, as well as more at intimate venues such as the Green Note, Vortex and the Forge, London.
