The Hohlax Trio brings its traditional sounds of Greek Rembetiko all the way from Athens, Greece, to the Village Homes Community Center, 2661 Portage Bay East, on Sunday, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m.
The Hohlax trio of Jaime Smith (violin), Orestis Koletsos (bouzouki) and Apostolis Kounis (guitar, oud and vocals) was formed in 2007 on the Greek island of Amorgos. They are currently based in Athens. The name hohlax refers to the beach hohlakas, where the members of the group have spent many summers together. This beach provided much inspiration and gives the group members a unique energy and force, which, together with their dedication to the music tradition of Greece, makes for a unique and moving musical experience.
