Rebetiko refers to the fusion of West and East, Greece and Asia Minor, in music. However, to General Metaxas, it is only a reminder of the Turkish influence on his country. The ruthless Greek dictator is determined to crack down on rebetis and their way of life, creating strict censorship. A small group of friends--Rebetiko musicians--wind their way through the Athenian backstreets, ouzeris , and market squares, dodging the police while settling disputes over hashish and women. With music at its heart, the narrative portrays a day in the life of the Rebetiko musicians in Athens in 1936.

Praise for Rebetiko:

The coloured illustrations are attractive, but I couldn't keep the characters straight nor figure out the story.
