Voices of Rebetiko Workshop Vanessa Kourtesi

Voices of Rebetiko
workshop Vanessa Kourtesi

For the third year, the vocal workshop about Rebetiko is starting again for -. Starting from October, in this year's meetings we are going to learn from the greater vocalists and composers of Rebetiko. We will experience the diversity and richness of the style and we will investigate the vocal lines, ornamentation, style and technique as developed in each song.

We will discuss and analyze the style of each composer and singer, diving deeper in the musical environment of Rebetiko music. In the end of each workshop the students will be able to understand musical characteristics of each song, stylistic patterns of the vocal lines as well as technical information.

During the year, we will have the chance to experience group singing and explore voice in relation to our body as well. The workshop includes also warm up, technical vocal exercises, vocal group practice and technical and performance guidance. Each student will also receive individual advice about technique and interpretation during the lesson.
