Trio Tekke return to Brighton after 5 years to present their new album 'Zivo', a collaboration with drummer Dave De Rose (Rokia Traore, Mark Ronson, Mulatu Astatke)
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'.
