REMBETIKO? (Immigrant Music)
What isa rembetiko? It isa the Blues of Balkan, it isa nota happy syrtaki hopping around for tourists. In this music you hava embedded all the pain and passion ofa Balkan .It isa "The Philosophy of Freedom" ofa the Balkan.Also it isa immigrant music, whena all turkish Greeks hada to go back to Greece. Back then in their HOMELAND they were Strangers and Outsiders, so they played in the underground clubs of Athens.
Uribibrothers and the "Mangas" (Rembetes) are related.For Djermans: " Rembetika seien,Lieder von Rembetes für rembetes und ein Rembetis ( similiar to a real Uribi Man) sei ein Mann, der Kummer habe und ihn aus sich heraus brächte." We also hava Uribi Rembetiko, music influenced by Greek Guestworkers. Soon you will see on YOU TUBE.
In this little film there is so much unsaid between the man and the huge eyed woman. pLEASE writa in Comments what is unsaid. Giva speech to these characters. Maka film script."Speak and thou revealest thyself." quote by Mr. Steinere.
