Greek music beyond boundaries (tm)

 

Terran’s Greek Band (tm)

“Oi Fotia Pou’xeis Anapsei–Live”

 

A Rembetiko song played as a quintet.

Rembetica, Laïki, Demotiki, Eipirotika and more ...

 

Old style, acoustic Greek dance music for all occasions! Do the syrtos to classic songs like “Apo Tin Athena” and the tsamikos to favorite songs like “Itia.” Whatever the tune, this energetic band will move your soul (and soles) as they dance you back down the path to the world of your “Yiayia”!

 

Diverse repertoire

“Sala, Sala–Live”

 

Nisiotika love song played as a trio.

From Eipiros in the north to the islands in the south, this band goes beyond the boundaries of any one specific style, time period, or region. The group’s play list includes selections from the powerful Rembetika, melodic Laïki, enchanting Demotiki, and hypnotic Eipirotikan traditions. For private parties, Big Band Swing and other American music styles are available including foxtrot, cha cha, tango, and waltz, as well as 50s acoustic rock.

“Mes Stou Aigaiou–Live”

 

Nisiotika song played as a duet with Bryan Bowers, autoharpist extraordinaire

For private parties, Big Band Swing and other American music styles are available including foxtrot, cha cha, tango, and waltz, as well as 50s acoustic rock and Beatles songs.

 

Versatile sound

 

Mandolin or baglama, guitar, and dauli can be used on one song followed by violin or flute, guitar, and doumbeleki on the next. Of course, vocals are a must in Greek music, so two-part harmonies add to the group’s color. And that is just the trio. When a larger band is requested, acoustic bass and drums can be added. Dance instruction and a dance ensemble can also be provided.

 

Rooted in tradition

“Thalassaki Mou–Live”

 

A kalamatianos played as a quintet.

The group is at home performing for both the Greek community and the world at large. Performances include Chicago’s Taste of Greece Festival on Halsted Street, The Hellenic Museum of Chicago, and the Hellenic Organization of Chicago. Based upon its experience as the house band at Long Grove’s Long Grove Cafe and Evanston’s Panos Greek Restaurant, it is safe to say the band inspires both Greeks and non-Greeks into dancing in the aisles, exclaiming “Opaa!”

 

Flexible and affordable
