Rebetiko Festival: Homage to the Greek Blues
Rebetiko, (Greek Blues), was created in the hash dens of Piraeus 100 years ago by Greek refugees from Asia Minor.
It has over the decades become a globally respected musical style. Rebetiko is the music of passion, pain and love. It is a tapestry woven of Byzantine, Turkish, Roma, and Jewish and other musical forms.
Pliri Ntaxei and Chrysoula K & Purpura from Greece and Melbourne performers will create a melodious symposium.
