GREEK REBETIKO NIGHT AT THE MEZ
LIVE MÁLE VRÁSE
MÁLE VRÁSE is a typical Greek slang which means upset, mess and bust up.
Having in common the love for music from a very young age, and each one with a different musical background, the members of Mále Vráse mixed their influences and started their own music journey. Mále Vráse band sings Rebetiko, urban Greek folk music, that is rooted in the pre-war era and reflects harsh aspects of the daily sub-cultural lifestyle. Rebetiko derived from Asia Minor, and especially Smyrna, during 1920s and ended 30 years later as a mixture of Eastern and Western music features.
The band travels back to this popular period with a guitar, two bouzouki’s and a violin. They form their sound with respect to the original gramophone recordings, combined with contemporary music elements.
Mále Vráse band are:
Antonis Laurijsen – Guitar, Vocals
Charis Laurijsen – Bouzouki, Vocals
Dimitris Maris – Bouzouki, Vocals
Nikos Kaliouris – Violin
The Greek philosopher asked his questions to challenge and enliven the people of Athens.
The DJ Socrates jumps in his footsteps and asks his public to peek over their comfortable fences and dance out of the box. Stylishness, warmth, rhythm and roots are a few terms that could loosely describe the experience of a set by DJ Socrates. Leading and following his public immersed in a broad musical spectrum, keeping the tension arc calibrated and catching the groove at all times. Whether you are mad about Cumbia or the Psychedelic Sixties or you’d rather have some Folktronica or Electro Swing, it’s all there, from exciting dance floor vibes to trancy laid back lounge and everything in between. If you are looking for spicy originality, not your run-of-the-mill stuff, you are looking for DJ Socrates.
