Con Kalamaras and Wayne Simmons present this program about Rebetika music created when the Ottoman, Byzantine and Greek worlds came together through urban subcultures in 20th century Greece. The lyrics tell stories spanning love, loss, refugee tales and the trials of everyday life and the music is played on guitar-like instruments like the Bouzouki – hence the nickname ‘The Greek Blues’!
