Rebetika is the music of the the Greek communities of Asia Minor. After the disastrous war of 1922, many Ottoman Greeks were exiled to the European mainland. Rebetika is the "soul music" of the prosfigakia (refugees). Many of the songs deal with themes of death, exile, drug addiction, and love gone wrong. Although considered disreputable and forced underground, Rebetika influenced popular Greek music much the same way as American Blues influenced Rock n´ Roll.
