Product Description

Product Description

Pioneers of reinvented folk, vocalist Kristi and multi-instrumentalist Stathis remix traditional demotika songs to reflect their own experiences of urban life in Greece. A previous release by the acclaimed duo topped the World Music Chart for five months, and they are once again set to shake up the scene with Greekadelia: this is Greek folk as it has never been heard before.

Singer Kristi Stassinopoulou has been active on Greece's underground music scene and the international world music circuit for many years. Accompanied by her long time collaborator - composer, arranger, co-producer and multi-instrumentalist Stathis Kalyviotis (guitars, saz, laouto, bass, baglamas, keyboards, groove sampler and percussion) - they have made five albums: Ifantokosmos, Echotropia, The Secrets Of The Rocks (No 1 on the World Music Charts Europe), Taxidoscopio and now Greekadelia.

Their blend of traditional Greek rhythms and sound colours, haunting Byzantine vocal lines, rembetika music, psychedelic rock, ambience and electronica, combined with Kristi's charismatic personality and their colourful band, sparked great responses and led to frequent appearances in festivals, concerts and clubs across Europe, North America and Brazil.

Greekadelia features their arrangements of Greek traditional folk songs, as born, sung and danced in Greece's rural areas from the Aegean up to Thracia and Macedonia, from upbeat dances and fire celebrations to the old love songs of Asia Minor and to the harsh demotica songs of the mountainous areas of Epirus and Peloponnesus, in soundscapes ranging from purely acoustic to purely electronic.

Review

(4.5 stars) They call it reinvented folk, and that's an apt term, transforming the old into the new, so that it shines as brightly in the modern age as it did in the past, and remains just as relevant. --AllMusic, (Chris Nickson), June 2012

(4 stars) There has been little good news from Greece in recent months, so it's great to find a Greek duo doing inventive, contemporary re-workings of traditional songs...A highly original, compelling set. --The Guardian, (Robin Denselow), June 15, 2012

(4 stars) They set urban demotika, sailors' songs and village sagas to traditional Greek lauto, an Indian harmonium and frame drums, which they soup up with the aid of live looping. --The Independent On Sunday, (Michael Church), June 24, 2012

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, pure art 17 Nov 2012

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The pieces of this album break with everything know about music until now. The combination of contemporary and Hellenic/Greek music makes this album astonishing. It is obvious the authors of the album put a lot of dedication in the creation of each of the musical pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning album 15 Feb 2013

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wonderful modern adaptations of traditional Greek music . An excellent talented band and a vocalist with a beautiful melancholic voice. I played this to an elderly Greek couple and they had tears in their eyes as it recounted the music of their youth in Athens . Wonderful stuff.
