Trio Tekke & Dave De Rose
With two albums under their belt, Trio Tekke has continued to forge their own take on Rebetiko. From their early days of re-arranging traditional songs on ‚Ta Reggetika‘ (2009) through to the sonic explorations and original compositions of ‚Samas‘ (2011), Trio Tekke has been a vehicle of musical exploration for long time colleagues Antonis Antoniou, Lefteris Moumtzis and Colin Somervell. 2016 brought a collaboration with Dave De Rose (Rokia Traore, Mark Ronson, Mulatu Astatke) on drums, giving a new direction and depth to their sound. Louder, punchier and guaranteed to keep you on your feet, they have raised the roof in their first few outings as a quartet. From their performances at Jazz a Vienne and Fengaros Music Festival came a desire to write and record a new set of songs, featured on their latest release ‚ZIVO‘.
