Tijana Stanković – voice, violin Nikos Sahpazis – oud Márkos Albert - cello Ajtai Péter - bass ARGO (HU / GR / SRB) is a Budapest based band with an appetite for rebetiko and improv! A pinch of punk, spirit of rebellion, thrust of trance, drama of rock, sonic experimentation and some urban folk! ARGO (SER/GR/H) has recently formed in Budapest. Their rebetiko-influenced repertoire is permeated with strong free improvised sections. Among rebetiko and Asia Minor classics from the first decades of the 20th century, there are a few traditional Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian tunes corresponding to the style of the ensemble's performance: microtonality, oriental ornaments and adequate rhythmic systems. Tijana Stanković is singing and playing violin, Nikos Sahpazis on oud, Albert Márkos on cello and Péter Ajtai on double bass. Together they have created an original expression with rebetiko and contemporary improvised music, complemented in a way that it seems to have been made for each other. Argo soundcloud
