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 brothers Lysandros and Orestis Falireas and their band do - only in music!
Their sound is a unique urban blend of old Greek Music with new orchestration, production and remixing techniques.
Their recent release Imam Baildi III, is a bold crossover ranging from the Morricone-inspired “Rider”, to the cha-cha meets mariachi flavor of “Argosvinis Moni” and the climactic shake - your - bootyeffect of “Baila Cifteteli”. The nostalgic “Simioma”, one of the album’s singles came in 2ndin Funkhaus Europa’s contest for Best Global Pop Hit 2014.
So forget folklore, and get ready for intense urban sounds straight from Athens Greece bya 7-piece band including the two brothers, a seducing female vocalist, a crowd engaging MC and three virtuosi on the bouzouki, saxophone and el. guitar, that havesucceeded in getting audiences all around the world to their feet.
