This podcast will delve into the world of Rebetika, each week your host Con Kalamaras will have a new episode covering this genre. Rebetiko is story telling spanning love, loss, drugs, and heart-breaking refugee tales. Rebetiko has always been the music of the poor and the dispossessed, combining different musical styles of the region and with lyrics describing the joy, the sorrow, and the difficulties of everyday life. Often called the Greek blues, like the blues, it grew out of a specific urban subculture and reflected the harsh realities of an oppressed subculture’s lifestyle.

In the spirit of reconciliation we acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise the continuing connection to lands, waters, and communities.
We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders - past, present, and emerging.
Sovereignty was never ceded.
