Rebetika Sto Chicago;;

(system) #1

I am currently working on a senior thesis comparing the oral expression in rebetika and urban blues as a result of similar social situation, etc. I’m leaving for Chicago in a few days, and would like to perhaps interview a few musicians.
I’m having trouble finding any tavernas that might still house rebetika in Chicago. Does anyone know of a place that would be worthwhile? Or, does anyone know a contact in Chicago who knows rebetika musicians?

You could contact John Mavrogiannis, a friend of mine and rebetiko fan, and ask for his help.
