Bump

This is for kotumeyil for creating this great thread

Album: Vromiko Psomi (dirty bread), 1972
Song: Zeibekiko
Composer / Singer: Dionysis Savopoulos
greecetravel.com/music/musicfiles/savopoulos-zembekiko.mp3

I like this song very much. It has been performed by several other artists, but the original recording is the something else! It starts as a rembetiko (in the beginning the only instrument playing is a baglamas), but later it advances as rembetiko-rock!

Also, I found a site with info on the history of Rebetika and Laika in Greece and some of the most important composers and singers. It also has links to rebetika/laika/zebekika songs (many of them have already been posted in this thread).

Thank you, for reviving this thread, Neoptolemeos Some of the files I uploaded are expired now. Soon I'm gonna refresh them. New examples and instruction videos will come. By the way, if you can find a zeibekiko dance video, it would be very nice

I tried to find a good zeibekiko video on the net without much success...

I found a few videos on youtube click_here but they don't worth much. The last one would be very good if the picture quality wasn't so poor. The guy dances one of the best zeibekika ever! "To zeibekiko tis Evdokias" by Manos Loizos. You can download this song here: http://www.tavernaoliva.ru/music/evdokia.mp3

The original recording of this song is slower and much better IMO. I have it in my collection and if somebody wants it PM me and I can send it by e-mail.

Uskudara gideriken is an ancient byzantian song. But all balkan countries claim it as their own (bulgaria, serbia, bosnia, etc) so even if origins are dim it is certainly widespread. The chorus was even ripped by Boney M with their 70ies discohit "Rasputin". There are many versions, Eartha Kitt made one where she sings in Turkish.
 
For an old Greek (Istanbul rum) version, check out the soundtrack version of Yannis Saoulis.
 
For modern performers of turkish rembetika interpretation there are plenty to check out. Here are just a few suggestions out of many (saz, baglama & buzuki is central):

- Cevriye (Aman Katerina Mou)
- Bulutlu Pazar (Sinifiasmeni Kiriaki)

- Telegrafin telleri
- Madam Eleni
- Kulhani
- Akdeniz akdeniz
 
Fikret Kizilok:
- Istanbul (vocals also in greek)
- Olmasin Varsin (with Bulent Ortacgil)
 
Grup Trakya

- Ah Ege Ah (Raki-Roka)
- Kalenin Bedenleri (aka Tsifteteli Turkiko, vocals also in greek)
- Zeybekiko Mi Ma Finis (vocals in greek)
- Her aksam
- Oyle sarhos olsam ki
- Sirtaki Zorba
- Mangali Yaktin Mi
 
Yenigun Muzik:

now I m listenning a greek radio.rebet music.I give you a radio link .that s wonderfull.Full of greek folk music radio station listed.

My favorites

 
This is huge source about greek music.
 
 
I stopped drinking 3 years ago.I was drinking every night.I was an "aksamci" but those they passed.Now I am not drinking even a drop of beer.So when I found that rebetiko radio station after 3 years I really wanted put a bottle of raki or uzo on the table with melon and feta cheese.
 
I dreamed that i meet with my greek friends and drink raki together and listen rebet musics and listen their rum stories about old istanbul and tatavla.
 
Music is life kotumeyil really.

You're right Alparslan, music is life; especially for me. I'm an amateur musician and I like to play ethnic  music, including rembetiko. I know the taste of what you dreamed very well...
