Ντουρου, ντουρου

Here’s a wonderful traditional tune–Dourou, dourou. Several versions were recorded in NYC in the 20s, and I’ve included here as well a great performance of the song from the Melbourne rebetiko festival at Tsindos tavern.

Marika Papagika, NYC, 1928

Leonidas Smyrnios, NYC, 1927

Xarilaos Piperakis, NYC, 1926

And here’s the Papagika version played in Melbourne just this month (@ 38 mins).

You should watch the whole video–these are some talented musicians (more Πλήρη Ντάξει here).
