A tribute concert to the iconic divas by Australia’s own Rebetissa, Paskalia. Take k.d. lang’s sultry voice, add Patti Smith’s androgynous punk attitude and fuse it with the power and charisma of Janis Joplin and you get something close to Paskalia. She’ll transport you to the Cafe Amans of Istanbul and the back alleys of Athens, serenading you with the songs of Rita Abatzi, Roza Eskenazi, Marika Papagika, Sotiria Bellou, Stella Haskil, just to name a few. Her rich, soulful vocals tell stories of love, pain, hardship, pleasure, and addiction. Joining her are Apollonia Xylouris and Byron Triandafilides.

This event has been cancelled.
