Refugee Radio 'Rembetika Blues' documentary discussion: Rebetika as migration stories

Sunday, 30 June 2019 - 10:00am to 10:30am
Rembetika Blues

We interview filmmaker Dr Mary Zounazi about her current documentary-in-progress, 'Rembetika Blues', which details the story of Greece's rebetika music. We discuss rebetika's role in keeping alive the memories of migration, drawing together diasporic populations, as well as its relevance to current waves of migration and forced displacement such as those of Syrian refugees arriving in Greece.

Sunday 10:00am to 10:30am
Can you imagine what it would be like to have to flee terror in your own country, spend days or weeks in a leaky boat on dangerous, rolling seas ready to swallow you at any moment, and then arrive in a new country, where you are terrorised even more?
