GJK Promotions proudly presents (my last trip overseas for the year 2008 ;) Maraveyas ILegal from downtown Athens, Greece, as Prowl of the Day.
Maraveyas ILegal plays folk rock, ska and bossa nova music. Maraveyas ILegal is; Kostis Maraveyas - vocals, accordian, piano, guitars, Nikos Papavranousis - drums, Ilan Manouach - sax, Angelos Papadatos - bass, Gregorio Danis - el guitar and Kalantzo - producer. As you listen to this Greek music, you can hear the beauty that stands behind it.
Maraveyas recorded his first solo cd in 2003 called "Radiopirate". In July of 2007 Kostis has recorded his second album forming his new multiethnic band - Maraveyas - ILegal. In ‘ilegal’, Balkan electric guitars, Latin trumpets, Jewish saxophones, classical cello are perfectly fused together under ska, reggae, rock, punk, r&b rhythms, all influenced by traditional Greek, and gypsy melodies plenty of free improvisation parts. This project introduces for the very first time in Greek discography a totally new sound never heard before. (taken from his website http://www.maraveyas.net/ )
