The Greek Cultural Center presents the acclaimed Greek singer-songwriter Sokratis Malamas, a well-known Greek musician, accompanied with a group of other talented Greek musicians, for the first time in the United States. Sokratis Malamas grew up in Thessaloniki and recorded his first album Aspromavres Istories in 1989. Since then he has recorded many songs and albums and has performed with famous musicians, and composers.
Each of Sokratis' performances is a unique musical ritual. As an artist who never fails to push his limits, the intensity of his performances have firmly established his reputation. Malamas will span his vast career in concert, inviting us on a musical journey with various musical genres ranging from Rembetiko (Greek Blues), and Rock, to Alternative and Greek Folk music. The lyrics to the music that Malamas performs are embedded within Greek culture, and focus on themes such as immigration, love, hardship, and everyday Greek life.
