Tania Giannouli

The ancient cultures of Greece and Aotearoa inform this expressive set of textural tapestries from pianist/composer Tania Giannouli and one of the leading taonga pūoro (the Maori traditional instruments) exponents, Rob Thorne.

Rewa was recorded over a two-day period in May 2017, less than a day after Tania and Rob met for the first time. It was a potentially risky endeavour, but they agreed in advance that if nothing tangible came out of the session they would simply put it down to experience, little knowing that they were about to lay the foundations for an exceptional new album.

Rewa was included twice in the Europe Jazz Media Chart for July and was for several weeks in the the top 10 selling classical albums as announced by RNZ (Radio New Zealand) Classical Charts
