Oriental sound, mostly from Greece and Asia-Minor. Among this music the Rebetiko.
Greek ρεμπέτικο, occasionally transliterated as Rembetiko, this is a term used today to designate originally disparate kinds of urban Greek folk music which have come to be grouped together since the so-called rebetika revival, which started in the 1960s and developed further from the early 1970s onwards.
The genre embodies a synthesis, in varying proportions, of elements of European music, the folk music of mainland Greece and the Greek islands, Greek ecclesiastical music, and the modal traditions of Ottoman music.
As I said in the "western sound" section, for those who are not used to this music, please listen to it not only once. Try to taste it without prejudice and with open mind ... letting it carry you in its sometimes hypnotic and magical athmosphere.
