The Greek band Imam Baildi returns to Cyprus this February for performances in Nicosia and Limassol.
Imam Baildi is a very popular Southeast Mediterranean dish consisting of aubergine stuffed with onion, garlic, and tomatoes simmered in olive oil. It is a similar fine blend that Lysandros (drums, percussion) and Orestis (DJ, programming) Falireas do - only in musical terms!
On the one hand the unique sound of rebetiko, a sort of outlaw Greek blues that captivated the country’s music scene from the turn of the century until the early 1950s, and one the other hand a combination of trip-hop, drum & bass and hip-hop influences Orestis was subjected to while studying in the UK in the late nineties. Just add an MC, a female voice and a fair bit of Balkan flair to the mix and there you have it… Imam Baildi!
