Coming up on its 26th year, the SxSW (South by Southwest) Music, Film and Interactive Festival will showcase Greek music for the first time in 2013. The Greek presence at the top cultural festival in the world is organized by a private initiative lead by Hollywood-based Criteria Entertainment. The major sponsors of the event are the leading green cleaning products manufacturer, Earth Friendly Products, and En Lefko radio.
The Greek acts to perform at SXSW are a mix of rock, alternative, pop, urban, and electronic music. Some perform in English, Greek, or both, even blending Greek rhythms like rembetika and other folk music into their sound.
Greek Reporter is an official Media Sponsor of “Sounds of Greece” at SxSW.
