Γεια Σου μάγκες / gia sou manges!*
*as rembetikos used to cheer to each other in music.
This mix has been put together by dj Sebcat (http://www.mixcloud.com/Rebel_Uppa/ /Brussels Up!) as a warm-up for the *Rebetika* concert of Andy Moor & Yannis Kyriakides on 21-06-12 @ Recyclart. It merges the sound of old rebellious Rebetika blues from tough Greek times between 1920-1960 with sounds of the current crisis; fierce riots, strong protests, spiced tv debates and soundbits of the elections and political developments of the last few days, including speeches by right and left wing parties, victors and non-collaborators. The sound of the mixtape is lo-fi, abrasive and at times loud for it merges history with the contemporary; the crisis and mass immigration from Turkey, Asia Minor and exodus of the 1920`s mirrored to the current crisis and economic exodus. The songs used here have not lost their meaning at all.
