Katerina’s, an eclectic club with its soul in the arts, will host two specials shows this weekend.
On Friday, April 15, Katerina’s presents Rebetiki Istoria, on tour from Athens, Greece. This is their only Chicago appearance.
The group is comprised of Pavlos Vassiliou on voice/tzoura, singer Eirini Liokoukoudaki, Nikolaos Menegas and Giorgos Petroudis on bouzouki, Vangelis Nikolaidis on guitar and Yona Stamatis on violin.
The group is said to perform many early Rembetika works, including a repertoire of difficult and unusual songs rarely performed today. This special night of live Rembetiko is not to be missed.
