5.0 out of 5 stars Brooding, moody and very cool, 24 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Mavrika (Audio CD)
I've been playing this CD a lot since I got it. That these are mainly 1930s Greek songs is kind of incredible. The sound is right up to date and accessible. A bit psychedelic, a bit grungey. The arrangements are not overloaded - it's a guitar band format (with just a touch of overdrive on guitar) with bouzouki and nicely scratchy violin on some tracks, and where drumming gets space for odd time signatures to feature. I love the clean confident vocals contrasting with the rock set up and there's a bit of clever vocal overdubbing. Clearly the music is rooted in tradition but Mavrika have come up with something that feels really fresh and honest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous Mavrika!, 29 July 2013
This review is from: Mavrika (Audio CD)
Came across this band at Womad and they were one of the highlights. This is not Greek holiday music - it's a mixture of deep Greek Rembetika and modern electric arrangements. Great vocals and a top notch guitarist make a great combination. Bought the CD and it lives up to expectation - good sound and production - play loud and enjoy. Can really recommend this - open your ears and mind to a great new band.
