Classic rebetika with Hebrew lyrics

Eva Broman found this to go along with a recent discussion on Jewish influence on rebetika, from the Jewish-Music mailing list:

re: the "Jews and rebetiko" thread, here's a lovely youtube video clip with the Israeli rebetiko group "Perach Adom"....classic rebetika with Hebrew lyrics!


There are two more clips with Perach Adom, hopefully accessible from the same page.


The well-known Israeli pop/rock singer, descended from Thessaloniki Jews, sings a song to a zeimbekiko rhythm on a tape I have; I assume it's in Greek and an established rebetika song, but am not sure on this.
