Rembetika


Notes

Rembetika is the music of Greece's impoverished and dispossessed. Fusing the sounds of the eastern Mediterranean with realistic lyrics, it portrays both the struggles and triumphs of the nation's underprivileged. It is music born of oral traditions, with both lyrics and music subject to considerable improvisation. Today, its sound is heavily influenced by the Neopolitan-Italian tango styles prevalent during the period between the two World Wars.
