Eleni Georgiou studied music and singing in France and UK. For 10 years she worked as a Music Coordinator in schools in London. In addition to this she worked as a professional opera singer, while performing in London and other European cities. After the birth of her children she created Asterakia. Asterakia is a fun, music, movement and drama class in Greek for the under ‘5s. Asterakia’s curriculum is based through the use of original songs as well as a new arrangement of traditional Greek nursery rhymes, classical pieces and folk songs. Two years ago, Asterakia and Rebetiko Carnival created a series of interactive concerts in order the children to explore the beauty of the Greek Language and music through a fun concert.
THE REBETIKO Carnival
The Rebetiko Carnival became an official Charity in April 2016. However, the idea began with a festival in 2014. Although the core organisers of the festival was a small group of musicians, this was the culmination of a thriving community of Rebetiko music in London over the last twenty years, bringing together people from all different backgrounds and interests.
