Hear Greek Rebetika at Village Homes

From page A7 | January 22, 2014 |

The Disciples of Markos will perform in Greek Rebetika style at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at Village Homes Community Center, 2661 Portage Bay Ave. East.
The band includes Dinos Demakos (vocals, percussion, baglama), Dmitri Mavra (bouzouki), Julay Broukounas (guitar, vocals), Kosmos Gervisis (accordion, violin, baglama) and Pavlakis Wernick (baglama, bouzouki).
The Disciples of Markos are one of the few bands today that play classic Rebetika, a style of music that developed in the underworld of 1930s Greece. The music was born in the ghettos of Athens from the mixture of Greek and Turkish folk styles when thousands of immigrants came from Turkey in the 1920s.

“It was the music of dopers, thieves, prostitutes, beatniks, dandies and all sorts of shady characters,” a news release said. “This heavy, low-down music told the stories of the hardscrabble underworld life of knife fights, drug busts, love and longing.”

The Disciples of Markos were founded in 2005 with the goal of exploring the music of Markos Vamvakaris, a singer, songwriter and bouzouki player of the 1930s. In addition to the songs of Vamvakaris, the Disciples play songs by many of his cohorts and peers — Tstisanis, Delias, Batis and others.

While bouzouki is the main instrument in a Rebetika ensemble, the Disciples like to include other instruments from the classic era — accordion, violin, baglama, tzouras, even the classic clinking of the ouzo glasses.

The band consists of veterans of the Bay Area music scene who are well-versed in Balkan music, as well as rock, jazz, bluegrass, Cajun and more.
This TimnaTal Music event costs $13 in advance and $17 at the door. For more information, visit www.timnatalmusic.com or call 530-867-1032.
