Cafe Hasani

Schoolhouse Roxx presents Ruth Margraff, Nikos Brisco, and The Café Hasani Ensemble in Songs of the Table.

Featuring the hot new ensemble behind the radical operas: WELLSPRING, CAFE ANTARSIA, ORPHEUS and JUDGES 19 recently presented at Here Arts Center, BAM Cafe, Joe’s Pub and tours to Great Britain, Texas and international festivals in Russia, Serbia and Greece. With new songs and scenes from a trilogy of collaborations between acclaimed punk-poetic playwright Ruth Margraff and Greek/Texan composer Nikos Brisco. Songs are influenced by Greek blues meshed with deep Ellum Dallas, Ottoman art composers and the Romani/Gypsy music of the Balkan marketplace. Instruments will include gypsy guitar, Cretan lauto, accordion, Turkish oud, Croatian tamburitza, baglama, dumbek, riq, frame drums and Cretan lyra. Featuring new songs from CAFE ANTARSIA, a Greek/Ottoman opera inspired by the failed rebellion of 1889 on the island of Crete off the coast of Greece at the end of the Ottoman Empire.
