Merem was formed in Rotterdam in 2021 by the musicians Dimitra Metzaki (oud), Yiorgos Bereris (piano), Vanessa Kourtesi (vocals), Yiannis Vagianos (double bass) and Ektoras Remsak (drums).
The band members met during their studies at Codarts University of the Arts. Their common roots combined with the environment in which they met, prompted them to compose their own music with influences from Greek tradition and Jazz improvisation.
The result of their joint quest is the self-titled album Merem, recorded in Utrecht in early 2023 and released in September.
Their sound is soft, poetic and colourful. They love the freedom offered by improvisation. Their compositions include elements, coming from rebetiko and music from Smyrna, that bring oriental flavours to their music.
