TRIO CAFÉ SMYRNE-Asia Minor

Description

CAFÉ SMYRNE wants to revitalize the masterpieces of the
old popular urban music of Greece. The source of this music is the period of the 'café santour' or 'café aman', the name given to the famous cafes, where music ensembles from Smyrna and Constantinople began to reveal the richness of Eastern Greek music.  Composers of those times placed their indelible mark on the style and substance of Greek music then and now. All of this began around 1870.
The great success and popular interest in the eastern styled music with its "amanes" (improvised laments about life, poverty, love etc), both in Greece and amongst the many Greek immigrants in America, also influenced the 'rebetiko', the newer form of Greek popular urban music. With its repertoire, Café Smyrne has a typical Eastern Mediterranean sound.
Greece being located on a geographical crossroads from Armenia to Western Europe and from the Balkans to North Africa, the interaction of different kinds of musical traditions was an extremely interesting cultural experience, which developed into the Eastern Mediterranean music.
