Dimitris Mystakidis pays homage to rebetiko, which he has faithfully been serving for 30 years now and he is presenting a concert with rebetiko of the guitar full of passion and pleasure.
The guitar, one of the most significant folk musical instruments around the world, has a unique and truly important place in rebetiko, as well. Dimitris is one of the few contemporary performers who have managed to accurately record the role and techniques of folk guitar in rebetiko groups. A role so accompanying and yet soloistic, when necessary.
With the partners of all those previous years being his music travel companions, the academic professor and virtuoso Dimitris Mystakidis is inviting us to enjoy the atmospheric cover versions and adaptations of favorite rebetiko songs that stood the test of time. Songs that took no trends or fashions into account and still manage to touch our hearts.
Three amazing guitarists together with Ifigenei Ioannou in vocals perform and sing on the stage of Cosmopolis festival in their “Rebetiko Guitar Project”.
