“ A day in the life of the persecuted Rebetiko musicians ”

Athens, 1936. General Metaxas is cracking down on rebetis and their way. A small group of friends – Rebetiko musicians – wind their way through the Athenian backstreets, ouzeris and market squares dodging the police while settling disputes over hashish and women. With music at its heart, the narrative builds to a joyous party at its climax in this award-winning graphic novel.

Prudhomme's splendid graphic novel follows a group of Athenian musicians asthey welcome one of their number from prison and embark on a great and dangerous night out
