GREEK UNDERWORLD MUSIC IN NAXOS

Image

No words, it could be dangerous! But how to remain silent when we hear this unexpected and beautiful music coming from the depth of the human being. Sometimes, musical notes rise to the stars from the heart of the Kastro and conquer the night. Rebetiko or mortika, call it the way you prefer. Follow it to…

Finding It on CD is easier: AAVV, Mortika. Rare Vintage Recordings from a Greek Underworld, Arko Records 2005
