Greek Music in America

Stavros K. Frangos

University Press of Mississippi

There is probably no more prolific writer on Greek American culture and history than anthropologist Steve Frangos. His essays span many realms of culture, but the body of work regarding early Greek American recordings is particularly strong. His essay on “George Katsaros: The Last Café-Aman Performer” examines early Greek musical forms and transformations as documented by the recording industry. By using the career of iconic musician Katsaros as an example, he finds a reflection of the collective Greek American experience and illustrates that Greek music must be viewed through the lens of modern music history in order to determine whether certain genres are created traditions.
