Pasatempo Rebetika

The Seattle-based band Pasatempo plays rebetika, a form of Greek folk music akin to the blues in its passion and power, as well as in its focus on the trials of love gone bad, booze and drugs, jail, sickness, death, and the longing for home. The music of Pasatempo, like the blues, explores these hardships and heartbreaks with a joy and zest for life that transcends any particular time or country.
