Rebetiko
With his three  albums, “16 Rebetiko Guitar Songs”, “Esperanto” and the recent “America”,  Mystakidis  proves that Rebetiko is a universal musical language.
A great kind of folk art, which slowly occupies the place it deserves in the world of music. For this reason, the  UNESCO has recently included rebetika in the List of  Cultural Heritage.

Recently,  D. Mistakidis’s album AMERIKA was released, including Rebetiko songs that were played live in the United States almost a century ago.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socialising, good books and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and , there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world.But I never lost my love of Crete for a minute. And four years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
