Timoleon Veremis, known as Leon of Athens, moved to London in 2012. His material, first released in Greece, was inspired by a country in crisis, making headlines there and as far afield as the New York Times and within just a few months he was playing to audiences of over 10,000.

In the UK he has been building interest with many magazines including: Q Magazine (Track of the Day), Clash Magazine (Premiere), Record of the Day, Subba Cultcha (Artist of the Week) Amazing Radio (Record of the Week - Gill Mills) and God is in the TV (Track of the Day).

Yiannis Aggelakas & Band live

Tuesday, November 4, at 9:00 pm
SO36 (Oranienstr. 190, 10999 Berlin, Germany)

Yiannis Aggelakas doesn't need any special introductions. Well-known singer, songwriter, poet and actor, he is regarded in Greece as one of the most significant and multifaceted artists. He has an explosive performance on stage and a unique interpretation style. Through a blend of folk-rock elements - that were always present at his previous work - and traditional “rebetiko” sounds, he creates unique new melodies and rhythms. Through his music a big part of the Greek music history is narrated.

Yiannis Aggelakas used to be the frontman of one of the most famous Greek rock bands called "Trypes". "Trypes" produced albums with psychedelic/punk rock music. After the band was disbanded in 2001, Yiannis Aggelakas devoted himself into creating different kinds of experimental music. He started and maintained a productive solo career while at the same time he also collaborated with many other artists.

Among his friends and partners are Dinos Sadikis on baglamas and guitar, Christos Charbilas on electronics and percussions, Titos Kargiotakis on sound deck and electric guitar and Stathis Arabatzis on guitar. With them, Yiannis Aggelakas will be presenting in Berlin, after one year from his latest gig, selected songs from his entire recording history.

Special guests of the night: TBA
