‘Arhontorebetika’ style became a very popular genre in Greek music in the 1950s and 1960s. A cross between Rebetiko and the ‘light’ music, both equally popular at the time, represents musicological as well as cultural interest. Its upbeat rhythm, light-hearted themes and easy-listening tunes were loved by all social classes and served by composers from both genres. A brief introduction will trace the beginnings and developments of this style of music.
