The group Apsilies formed spontaneously one afternoon during a strike at the university, when four musician friends and music professors found themselves hanging out together and decided to play the old songs for fun while they were waiting. They instantly found each other in the music and their natural, genuine and fresh approach has generated an overwhelming response at their concerts in Greece as well as acclaim for their first CD release. The expertise and passion of each of the musicians, the exquisite voice of Theodora Athanasiou, the combination of the strong characters and variety of instruments result in a powerful experience of the old rembetika in modern times.
