Theodora Athanassiou – guitar
Taxiarchis Georgoulis – oud
Loukas Metaxas – percussions
The band was established in September 2016 by Theodora Athanassiou, in order to become the core part of musical expression on her own modern compositions. The main concept is to build a music bridge between the history and the future stories of Eastern Mediterranean music. As a result this project aims and would like to be the answer on how a young musician deeply involved in old elements of various orient musical styles (mainly rembetica songs) could express and compose today’s music with an old traditional guitar.
Their first music project “No Words” will be released and introduced to the Athens music scene on the autumn of 2017. The project will follow the story of an old romantic guitar (kitharoni) that travels for more than one and a half century from Vienna where it was created to Smyrna where it was sold. And now, living in Athens of 2017 it has a lot of stories to tell…
One of the project’s song is “Kordelakia”
*Kordelakia: Slung for the emotional playful tricks of the middle war era.
