You will sing and surround yourself in a world of Rembetiko lyrics. Walking through Piraeus’ industrial streets peering over the serene blue sea, you will explore Rembetes’ lyrics of untamed internal strength. Simple lyrics, by seemingly uneducated men, were wise in meaning, honest in emotion and poetic in their truth. The musicians’ baglamadaki and bouzouki will ring against Piraeus’ homes, as you sing words of pride and honor, of promise and hope and a life worth living. In a single verse, you feel the weight and lift in the duality of realism and idealism; where the difficulties of circumstances coexist with the passions and promise of the human condition.


You will read, sing and write; playing with those intangible reasons that drive every human story, giving it strength.


You will explore those feelings and thoughts that inspire your lyrics and color your reality. Echoing off the port’s shores will be the notes of lapsing waters and the harmony of idealism and realism coming together. Rembetiko music will tickle your core, awaken those feelings, ideas and human values that have the power to transcend any difficult situation. Swaying to the emotions behind their words, to the meanings in their melodies, you’ll be connected and enlivened by those human values that hold the possibility of change.

In underground cluttered tavernas, Rembetes could spill their souls through music and dance; in their light, you too will dance in a new found sense of strength.


In an authentic taverna from 1932, you will dance in a space safeguarded by camaraderie and a deep recognition of being human. The values you hold in your heart will be your compass as music beats against your chest and a local dance instructor mentors you through the techniques of Zeibekiko. This is an improvised dance for the courageously honest. Your feet and body move to the beat of your heart and what you carry inside – the steps themselves are insignificant.

Courage and honor lead your steps forward whilst fear and insecurity draw them back. You will bow down in the weight of your worries but rise up in the hope of what tomorrow may bring. Settled in an aroma of afternoon wine and traditional food, you will dance to the passions and dreams that forge you forward. You will flow through the unexpected shifts and changes of music, only to realize the twists and turns of life’s challenges.

Moving freely and seeping in passion, you will find that the true value of reality lies with all the non-material meanings we draw from our experience of living: in the ideas, principles and beliefs that guide us and help us grow.

Enthralled in the moment, with Rembetiko lyrics ringing around you, you will dance with the truth of your stories and the truth of your emotions leading the way. You will let your internal drive and the music move your steps, let your body dip down to the ground and greet the sky, spin in exhilaration; feel free and empowered in the value of being human.

We don’t expect you to dance with the sway of a Rembete or to move smoothly, we simply want you to courageously feel the passion with which they lived the moment, every moment – as precious and ephemeral as life itself. The way they basked in the honor of their reality with the light of their ideals.
