Rebetiko Carnival

Rebetiko: Çigdem Aslan with Pavlos Carvalho & Pavlos Melas
Date: Tuesday March 17 2015
Venue: The Forge, 3-7 Delancey Street, London NW1 7NL
Details: Rebetiko is the “underground” music from mainland Greece, with early influences from Smyrna from the 1920s onwards. It is sometimes referred to as the “Greek Blues” and was made illegal due to the controversial themes of it's lyrics. Over a 30-year period it also absorbed influences from American swing, Latin and Indian music, creating a rich and varied repertoire of songs and dances. The music expresses the pain and suffering of the people at the time, through war, poverty and incarceration, as well as other deeply felt sentiments and aspects of everyday life.
Tonight's event is promoted by the Rebetiko Carnival and is taking place to help raise funds and awareness for the 2nd Rebetiko Carnival's, in 2016, programme of concerts, schools workshops and outreach work.

Honey, Olives, Octopus: Adventures at the Greek Table
By Christopher Bakken



The Greek Myths: The Complete and Definitive Edition

Combining the best of memoir, travel literature, and food writing, Christopher Bakken delves into one of the most underappreciated cuisines in Europe in this rollicking celebration of the Greek table. He explores the traditions and history behind eight elements of Greek cuisine--olives, bread, fish, cheese, beans, wine, meat, and honey--and journeys
through the country searching for the best examples of each. He picks olives on Thasos, bakes bread on Crete, eats thyme honey from Kythira with one of Greece's greatest poets, and learns why Naxos is the best place for cheese in the Cyclades. Working with local cooks and artisans, he offers an intimate look at traditional village life, while honoring the conversations, friendships, and leisurely ceremonies of dining around which Hellenic culture has revolved for thousands of years. A hymn to slow food and to seasonal and sustainable cuisine, "Honey, Olives, Octopus" is a lyrical celebration of Greece, where such concepts have always been a simple part of living and eating well.
