They are the creative expression of an urban subculture whose members the Greeks commonly called rebetes.

The tradition of rebetika song is at the root of all that is most vibrant and subversive in the popular music of modern Greece. In its origins it is the music of the poor, the dispossessed, the refugees and the migrants who came to Greece from Asia Minor before and after the First World Rebetika book.

The songs I have chosen are my favorites, some old rembetika, some new rembetika and some laika which is what rembetika metamorphosed into with influences from all other types of Greek music.

I have used mostly later recordings of the songs because the sound quality is better and they are more likely to get you to go out and start your collection.

Rebetiko is "outsider" Greek music, Turkish influenced, maybe started, in some ways, in the early twentieth century, very popular now in Greece and in that region, and I so wanted to like this lovely book, showing how cool, funky musicians were being put down in by rising Greek fascism as in other countries at that time, decrying "decadence" by the state but this was annoyingly confusing /5.

For me, this book provided colorful details of rebetika culture and lifestyle. My grandmother (born in Lesbos)used many of the words mentioned in the text. Her husband, my grandfather, was born and raised in Syros (one of the hot beds of rebetika)/5(3).
