Rootmaster presents TRIO TEKKE.
With two acclaimed 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), (a word that came to be a definition to a new Rebetiko sound over the last few years) through to the sonic explorations and original compositions of ‘Samas’ (2011), Trio Tekke has been a vehicle of musical journeying for long time colleagues Antonis Antoniou, Lefteris Moumtzis and Colin Somervell. 2015 brought them together with drummer Dave De Rose (Moloko, Rokia Traore, Mark Ronson, Mulatu Astatke), 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 in France and Fengaros Festival in Cyprus, came a desire to write and record a new set of songs, to be released in 2017.
