  • Over Singing workshop voices of Rebetiko



    Marika Frantzeskopoulou was one of the greatest vocalists of rebetiko music. She was Born in Istanbul in the end of 19th century and died in Athens, Greece. She has worked with great musicians of the time, such as the violinist Giannis Ogdontakis. She has recorded plenty of songs and improvisations and she also appears in discography as a composer. Marika Frantzeskopoulou handles her voice with great virtuosity and emotion and seems to have great knowledge both on technique and in musicality.
