The heat is on in Philadelphia this weekend. Pull out the family projector and watch a film on the side of your garage, the old fashion way… What film you ask? I have a great one for you. One that will make you all get up and dance.
An amazing documentary about the Rebetiko music style and it’s history by the BBC. If you love Rebetika, then you’ll love this documentary by the BBC. What is Rebetika?
The music, it inspires, it begs you dance. It’s usually danced by a man alone. He begins-slowly, almost in a trance. He turns as if waiting for his spirit to move him and when the spirit arrives, the man and the music are one. And that, that is Rebetika.
