Greek “rebetes” (folk musicians) of the tri-state area and beyond set the traditional Greek spirit loose in various restaurants, tavernas, special occasions and Greek festivals around the US.

Mr. Achilleas Papaefthemiou, quoted as the “nightingale of the Greek Diaspora in America”, and his group, bring us a beautiful new CD, compiling Greek America’s favorite Greek folk hits.

“Tis Ksenitias ta Vasana” (=The hardships of living away from home) and “S’agapo giati ise orea”(=I love you because you are beautiful) are amongst the long list of long loved and vastly enjoyed songs included in the new release, “Greek Folk Music in America, Blue Notes, Galazies Notes.
