Tasos Georgopoulos

Tasos Georgopoulos was born and raised on the island of Cephalonia in Greece and from a very young age he was involved in composing forms of traditional and folk music of Greece, considered  one of the most skilled Lavta (Greek traditional Lute) players in Greece.

 

His has many cd publications and participations   (e.g. Lost Island, Kite, Rebeletiko “Monastiraki”) and several Digital Singles.

Rebeletiko is a Greek Folk music.

Using traditional Greek instruments, the musicians "conspire" with the sounds of rebetikas, Smyrnaeans, and all kinds of folk music from mainland and island Greece to the coasts of Minsor Asia  and Pontus. They travel everywhere leaving traces of Greek music not to stand out but to unite.

 

After many searches, Rebeletiko presented our first album entitled "Monastiraki".

Jazzmakam Athens Orchestra composes and plays music based on the aesthetics of the memory that was stored for centuries in the stones of Greece. Their music  listens to the silence and sorrow of the people to whom for so many years,  music and singing were the means of expression.

 

The harmony of Jazz creates a background in which the monophonic traditional melodies of Greece travel, sometimes improvised and sometimes in a strictly Doric way.
