Rebetiko music in Nantes


 Musicians meet about once a week  to play Rebetiko music at La Frégate café; there you can meet Greeks, musicians and curious people.

Although nowadays treated as a single genre, rebetiko is, musically speaking, a synthesis of elements of European music, the music of the various areas of the Greek mainland and the Greek islands, Greek Orthodox ecclesiastical chant, often referred to as Byzantine music, and the modal traditions of Ottoman art music and café music.(Wikipedia)
