Need help for a rebetiko documentary

(system) #1


I am trying to shoot a documentary on Rebetiko for my thesis project in United States. I am also interested in the population exchance between Turkey and Greece in 1920s. So, I would appreciate it if anyone tell me rebetiko songs about refugees, immigration, nostalgia for Smyrna, Istanbul etc., bad living condition at refugee settlements and rebetisses.

Prof. Holst was involved in the production of a similar documentary some years back and has written at least one book on the subject.

I’m affraid you can’t make a good job without knowing th Greek language. There is already a large bibliography about rembetiko, and some of those books (i.e. “Ta hairia mas edo” by Angela -and Georges- Papazoglou) are indispensible.
