Opening of Balkan Trafik with Greek living legend –  1st of May at Bozar

2014-01-22-dalaras-nl

Lovers of the Greek blues are in for a treat. The Balkan Trafik Festival will be opened by the Greek living legend George Dalaras. On 1 May 2014 the “Rembetiko Show 2014” comes to the Centre for Fine Arts. Dalaras will pay an “unplugged” tribute to the rembetiko tradition. For his new tour, he has made a special selection of a number of traditional songs that he and his ten musicians will perform as authentically as possible. The Greek instruments (bouzouki, baglama, oud, and tzouras) will be amplified by microphones only, so that the sound will be as authentic and pure as possible.

Dalaras is one of Greece’s most important musical ambassadors. In the course of a career that has lasted more than 40 years so far, this popular folksinger has sold more than 12 million records and released some 70 CDs, several of which have gone multi-platinum. His powerful, melancholic voice invariably entrances his fans. Although George (Giorgos) Dalaras has never strayed far from his musical roots, in recent years he has successfully introduced elements of Latin, rock, Eastern, and folk music into his repertoire. He has worked with a great many other artists, including Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Al Di Meola, Paco de Lucía, Jethro Tull, Goran Bregovic, and Dulce Pontes.

George Dalaras was the first Greek singer to fill major venues outside his homeland. He has appeared in renowned concert halls such as the Royal Albert Hall (London) and the Olympia (Paris) and has also triumphed at many important international festivals. He even had the honour of performing at Nelson Mandela’s birthday party. His concerts in Belgium are always a great success.
