(p.105) Rebetika, the Blues of Greece—and Australia
Greek Music in America

Stathis Gauntlett

University Press of Mississippi

With an alarmingly large and comprehensive body of work examining myriad aspects of the topic, Australia’s Stathis Gauntlett is arguably the most knowledgeable rebetika scholar today. “Rebetika, the Blues of Greece—and Australia" not only delineates the lengthy history of rebetika in Greece and Greek communities in Australia, but also traces its ties to the American recording industry (including its construction as a genre by that industry) and even its comparisons to the blues. Although this book focuses primarily on America, developments in Australian diaspora communities provide fascinating and relevant points of reference due to the powerful similarities between the two countries and the lives of diaspora Greeks.
