ALBERTO NAR

Jews and Rebetiko

by Alberto Nar

SUMMARY: In Thessaloniki the powerful pre-war culture of the Jews of the city co-existed alongside the early development of Rebetiko. This paper examines the points where the two cultures meet in music and song.

Alberto Nar, a pillar of the Jewish community of Thessaloniki, died earlier this year. Before he died he gave permission to Ed Emery to present his paper on his behalf at the Hydra Rebetiko Conference.

The full version of the paper is being translated by Ed Emery and John Koulentianos, for inclusion in the forthcoming volume Researching Rebetiko.

CV: The following Obituary in Ladino came from Sam Hassid:

Los "gregos" de Ladinokomunita regretamos mucho la muerte de sinior Alberto Nar ke era el Istoriko "Ofisial" de la Komunidad Djudia de Salonik (JCT). Sinior Nar eskrivio muchos livros i artiklos sovre el pasado de muestra komunidad. Sinior Nar nasio un poko despues de la Sigunda Guera Mundial i esta de la djenerasion ke avlava grego komo lingua maternal - ma inda entendia un poko la lingua de sus djenitores. Eskrivio en grego un livro sovre los Kales de Salonik i las kantigas djudeo espanioles. Eskrivio tanbien un livro sovre Salonik i un artiklo sovre la influensa de las kantigas gregas "rebetiko" a los Chaildjis de Salonik.
