Rebetiko

Rebetiko, plural rebetika occasionally transliterated as Rembetiko, is a term used today to designate originally different kinds of urban Greek folk music which started in the 1960s and developed further from the early 1970s onwards. Although nowadays treated as a single genre, rebetiko is, musically speaking, a synthesis of elements of European music, the music of the various areas of the Greek mainland and the Greek islands, Greek Orthodox ecclesiastical chant, often referred to as Byzantine music, and the modal traditions of Ottoman art music and café music.
