The rembetika, songs that were sung in the poor quarters of Smyrna, Istanbul and the ports of Greece in the late nineteenth century. I’d had a somewhat authentic taste of Rembetika, or maybe it was more of an historic reenactment at a Greek tavern in Epirus, Greece called Piperi Tavern. But as one begins to understand the lyrics, it’s hard not to wonder about the people who wrote them and the time period. This book offers a bit of information on both but it is also somewhat of a memoir as the author also describes her time in the 1960s in Greece.
