Joined by highly skilled musicians with an excellent knowledge and feel. The London Greek Ensemble have performed in countless private events such as Greek weddings, baptisms, birthdays, garden parties and other special occasions.
Their performances embody the music traditions of Greece and Cyprus which will leave you inspired by the warmth, quality and authenticity you would normally experience in a Greek village feast or an in old taverna in Athens or Nicosia.
Their repertoire includes hundreds of Hellenic tunes, ranging from classics like Zorba the Greek and Never on Sunday to much less known songs in the categories of Tsamikos, Mantilatos, Pentozalis, Ikariotikos, Haniotikos and Ionian-island Serenades.
Forming groups of two to seven members, their aim is to satisfy the entertainment requirements of each party. Their instruments include bouzouki, guitar, accordion, violin, baglama, percussion and kanun.
Dancers and DJs can be recommended subject to request. In wedding -parties where both Greek and English entertainment is required, it can be a good idea to mix the elements by having a Greek band for the reception, dinner and first part of the evening and a DJ for the rest of the night.
Hello from India. Just to say a huge thank you for the most wonderful performance at our wedding. Everybody was amazed! The videographer will send you a YouTube link of the band. Feel free to put a link on face book and also to paste a link on my face book page as my friends & family are dying to see it! I won’t be back in the UK until end of February.
Lucia – Wedding
Thank you so much for everything – EVERYONE commented on how amazing you were, Greeks and English. I know the family especially loved the Trikala song you played. You really set the atmosphere, and for me the special touch was being serenaded as we arrived at the reception. The photographer is Greg Clark (on my face book friends), he said the photos will be ready in a couple of weeks. We are off to Santorini tomorrow for a weeks honeymoon. Yes a jam when I get back would be lovely!Thanks again
Thanks for the Great music!
