Rebetiko Trio

Known as the Greek blues, Rebetiko emerged in Greece in the 1920s as the music of the poor and the outlawed. Early songs were written in prisons where inmates crouched in circles, singing and playing their shonkily made baglamas. Central to Rebetiko are the subjects of pain, heartbreak and comradery, themes relevant to the subculture of the time.

An intimate performance in an iconic classic pub. Meal available alongside some of Melbourne’s best beers and independent wines and spirits.


When: Sunday March 10, 5pm-7pm

Where: The Post Office Hotel, 231 Sydney Rd, Coburg VIC 3058

Greek urban, folk and Anatolian melodies inspired by the traditional, classical and folk modal music of Greece and Turkey.

NikoTeini consists of Lavta (Istanbul lute/politiko laouto) and Kanun (zither/kanonaki) virtuosos Nikos Papageorgiou and Asineth Fotini Kokkala. They are world-class Greek musicians living in Istanbul. They are inspired by the traditional, classical and folk modal music of Greece and Turkey as well as contemporary compositions written especially for them.

Their story started when they began studying music together in 2019. During COVID lockdowns they decided to share their music every Monday on their YouTube channel maintaining contact with their audience. These videos, made with simple technical means as a mobile phone, are essentially a representation of the simplicity and immediacy that represents them.

Their Australian tour concludes with some shows in Tasmania.
