The Greek Blues known as Rebetika developed in the 1920’s and is still popular today. This icon represents the musicians and singers who perform this style of music
The female singer has small Cymbals on her fingers accompanying the musicians and singing, the Oud player (an important string instrument brought over from the Orient) and the drummer, playing the Touberleki make up this ensemble.
The red and white border is influenced by the way iconography frescoes in Greek churches are often framed. This Icon was the first painting I did honouring the tradition of Rebetiko music.
This print has hand painted gold embellishments around the heads of the musicians, making it a unique piece. Their sainthood made official by their golden halos.
