The Forgotten Bouzouki is the only Greek band in Newfoundland and Labrador. Formed in 1998 by members of the local Greek community, the band performs several genres of Greek music, including traditional, island, ballads, folk and Rebetika (the equivalent of American Blues). The Forgotten Bouzouki has been performing regularly at local festivals and venues and has been featured on several regional and national CBC radio programs. The band has always been known for its full orchestration and first-rate musicianship. In October 2011, The Forgotten Bouzouki released its debut self-titled CD.
