KAFE AMAN - Smyrna, Syros, Piraeus
A music travelogue full of songs which depict the drama of refugees as well as their hopes, and the birth of a new era. The Smyrnean song together with zither and violin sounds and its great composers meets rebetiko with the bouzouki of Marcos Vamvakaris and the rest of the great artists, in an unprecedented musical experience.
With Thessaloniki as their base, they play dynamic punk rock in their recorded music as well as at their fiery concerts. From deeply distorted guitar riffs and robust bass-drum to introvert and dark soundscapes, and from uplifting ska woodwinds to the enthusiastic tunes of brass organs of the Balkan tradition, BAiLDSA remain authentic towards their always evolving and diverse universe. What differentiates them and is always present in their song-making, is a steady and loud opposition to every form of fascism, racism, sexism and violation of human rights, a never-ending fight against all forms of war and division, and deep faith in humanity and the open, free societies.
