LIVE AT THE GREEK: MARIO PAPADEAS & FRIENDS
Mario Papadeas is a renowned santouri player and vocalist who has performed in Greece and internationally for many years. He plays traditional repertoire from Asia Minor and the songs composed by the Greek refugee musicians from that area such as Dalgas (Antonis Diamantidis) Panos Tountas and Kostas Skarvelis. Melbournians may remember Mario's last visit here around 14 years ago with Apodimi Compania.
Mario will conclude his upcoming trip to Melbourne with a performance at the Greek Centre on Friday June 15.
Joining him will be local musicians: Con Kalamaras (from the Melbourne Rebetiko Ensemble - guitar & tzouras), Mairead Hannan (from the Xylouris Ensemble - violin & voice), Wayne Simmons (from Polyxeni - guitar, accordion & banjo).
This is a unique opportunity to hear a virtuoso performance on this rare instrument and through the power of Mario's voice to experience the bygone of era of the first recordings of Greek popular music from the 20's and early 30s. Don't miss out - you might have to wait another 14 years!
