“MARKOS – the Patriarch of Rebetiko” TRIBUTE to MARKOS VAMVAKARIS (GRE)

“MARKOS – the Patriarch of Rebetiko” TRIBUTE to MARKOS VAMVAKARIS (GRE)Nicknamed “patriarch of the rebetiko” (Greek urban popular song), Márkos Vamvakáris (1905–1972) was a bouzouki player, singer and composer. His legacy as one of the nation’s greatest musicians is unassailable. Mikis Theodorakis (born 1925) said of him: “We all, we are but branches of a tree. Márkos is that tree.” This very, very special tribute project, with his son Stelios Vamvakáris on bouzouki, reinterprets his music and replenishes his legacy.
