Moshe Morad visits Athens, presenting music from bazouki player Manolis Karantinis, one of Greece's best-loved singers Glykeria, and Rembetiko from a small downtown kafeneion.
Moshe Morad is in Athens for the first of two programmes celebrating the rich mix of traditional urban music in the Greek capital. There's a session by the man many consider to be the greatest living bazouki player, Manolis Karantinis, and an authentic performance of Rembetiko or the Greek blues from a small downtown kafeneion. Plus a special World Routes gig in the port of Rafina by one of Greece's best-loved singers Glykeria.
Producer James Parkin.
First broadcast in December 2012.
