REBETIKO RESEARCH INDEX
WEBSITES

Every day, one after another, research sites dedicated to various aspects of rebetiko are springing up on the Internet. The foundations of rebetology are being transformed!

Since websites tend to die as fast as others are being set up, this Rebetiko Research Index will gather the best of what is available on-line. In part it draws on work already done by others. You will find discographies, biographies of the rebetes and rebetisses, analysis of rhythmic modes, histories of Greek musical culture, plus sites that offer down-loadable audio files of the music.

Please notify us of any sites that you think should be included in this list.
