From the Heart and the Streets
As part of our much-acclaimed series of that vigorous Greek music, Rembetika, comes this collection of women performers - no less vital and no less honest. If a music can come simultaneously from the heart and from the streets, this is it. Included are performers like Marika Papagika, Rita Abadzi and Roza Eskenazi who achieved fame beyond Greece's borders (Papagika recorded in New York). Perhaps of greater interest are lesser known singers like Kyria Pipina and Chrysa Thiveou who merit the exposure they are given here. The project was overseen by expert and enthusiast Charles Howard who also supplies transcriptions. As you'll discover, no concessions are made for gender. All human life is Rembetika's subject matter.
