The music ensemble of Vangelis Trigas gives performances in cultural venues in Greece and abroad and brings out both bouzouki as the national folk instrument as well as the cultural value of Greek folk music. During the performances the soloist presents songs from different periods of Greek folk music (artistic folk song, old folk song, rembetiko) as well as music pieces from aroundthe world, all presented harmonically through a modern view in orchestration. Moreover, he presents his own compositions for bouzouki, his own proposal for the future of the instrument.
Vagelis Trigas’ aim is to present bouzouki as an instrument with a differentiated sound that is harmonically combined with the other classical instruments of his ensemble (cello, bass, classic guitar, piano, mandolin). This coexistence of the refined folk elements of bouzouki on one hand and the classic sound of the other instruments on the other offer a very interesting and of high aesthetic version of Greek folk music, in other words, a new proposal.
