Trio Tekke specialises in traditional Greek Rembetika with a modern twist. The three musicians, two Cypriots and an Anglo-Chilean, combine the traditional with contemporary reggae and Latin rhythms, amongst others. They revel in playful improvisations, ensuring their renditions of these traditional songs, describing the joy, sorrows and difficulties of everyday life, have an air of innovation and sophistication. Trio Tekke have developed this particular blend of music after extensive exploration and many performances of Rembetika in its original style. The group plays a combination of re-arranged traditional tunes from the 1920 and 30s and their own material, instrumental music which incorporates eastern modes and complex time signatures that derive from traditional Greek and Balkan rhythms.
