I have always been a particular fan of Rebetika music and have written a previous post about it sometime ago. Like many things Greek, Rebetika is a musical form that speaks to the Greek soul and reflects the trials and tribulations of Greeks as a people. Many thanks to Hermes, who brought this series to my attention today. After watching the first two parts, I thought it was not only a great introduction to the music and the artists that bring it alive; it is also does a nice job of giving some context to the development of this art form by providing the backdrop of Greek history and culture which helped Rebetika grow. An added bonus is the narrator, Anthony Quinn, who as far as I'm concerned has honorary status as a Greek, ever since his superb film role as Zorba. Pame.
