Reβetien is a party of five musicians that perform songs and themes mostly derived from the Rebetiko and the Greek traditional music repertoire, as well as compositions of their own.

The band’s nostalgic sound is reminiscent of the gramophone records’ period, often subtly combined with alternate, yet closely related, musical styles of various Eastern Mediterranean and Balkan musical traditions.

Great emphasis is placed on the natural, acoustic sound of the instruments performing (accordion, bass-guitar, bouzouki and violin), the combination of which recalls in a sense the typical interwar bands of Smyrna, and on experimenting primarily with their arrangements, creating thus their own distinct sound and style.
