An introduction to the Greek tradition of the Rebetika song, which
was the music of the poor, the dispossessed, the refugees and the
migrants who came to Greece from Asia Minor before and after
World War I. The author argues that the music is in fact
cosmopolitan, having its roots in Turkey. The text includes
breakdowns of the rhythms and metric patterns of the different musics
and their associated dances and some of the songs from the tradition.
