The Female Voices of Rebetika
Time & Location
About the Event
Pascal Latra and Kat Stevens present the female voices of rebetika: Roza, Rita, Mittaki, Bellou. Bold, daring and brave, these women suffered hardships of the times and on top of that had to hold their ground in a male dominated environment. With special guests Byron Triandafyllidis and Rosco Heck.
Tsinskaro is a vocal ensemble brought together by their obsession with Georgian polyphony. Krzysztof, Stewart, Nick and Gosia met through Melbourne singing groups, bonded over a shared love of Georgian song and have been feeding their harmonic addiction ever since.
From jaw-dropping Svanetian harmonies to intricate Kakhetian melodies and soul-lifting Adjaran tunes, their performances aim to honour the incredibly rich musical traditions of this ancient Caucasian culture.
