Teaser Trailer of The Both Side of Aegean – REBETİKA

Rebetika was the music of the Greek underground. The lyrics reflected their surroundings, poverty, pain, drug addiction, police oppression, prison, unrequited love, betrayal and hashish. It’s the lifestyle and perspective of a subculture stretching from Asia Minor to Greece, from Smyrna to Piraeus…

The aim of the program is to introduce the rebetika artists who left their mark on the period between 1850-1950 with interviews, music performances and storytelling. Each week a new episode will be available for download.

I would like to share with you this special culture, which came to life from the sadness and joy of the peoples who lived together for centuries, with the information I learned.
