With two albums under their belt, Trio Tekke has continued to forge their own take on Rebetiko. From their early days of re-arranging traditional songs on 'Ta Reggetika' (2009) through to the sonic explorations and original compositions of 'Samas' (2011), Trio Tekke has been a vehicle of musical exploration for long time colleagues Antonis Antoniou, Lefteris Moumtzis and Colin Somervell.
Nominated for 'Best Newcomer' in Songlines Music Awards 2012
Received World Music Network's 'Battle of the Bands' Award 2012
2016 brought a collaboration with Dave de Rose (Rokia Traore, Mark Ronson, Mulatu Astatke) on drums, giving a new direction and depth to their sound. Louder, punchier and guaranteed to keep you on your feet, they have raised the roof in their first few outings as a quartet. From their performances at Jazz a Vienne and Fengaros Music Festival came a desire to write and record a new set of songs, to be released in 2017.
