Venue Details

Alsos Skopeytirioy

Erythroy Stayroy kai Iros Konstantopoyloy

Due to the ongoing pandemic, all performance dates are subject to change.

Delivered in a subtle, unadorned, authentic manner. A wooden stage, one voice, four musicians, two bouzouki, one guitar, one accordion. Songs written by Tsitanis, Papaioannou, Kaldaras, Savvopoulos, Moutsis, Andriopoulos and Lagios. Songs immortalised by Sotiria Bellou with her metallic, raspy voice, now coming alive in Christina Maxouri’s wonderfully understated performance.

Small stories of the past pop up in between the songs. Short incidents from Bellou’s life are presented to the audience, not in the form of a biography but as free associations. Funny, unusual anecdotes of her life in her own words, and in others’ words. A moving journey through the life and times of the ‘mistress of Rebetiko’; a look back and a tribute that brings us in touch with our common roots.
