      The Smyrna Time Machine plays Rebetika as well as the light-hearted and
      lilting dance music of the Aegean islands, heart-wrenching zembekika,
      sensuous tsiftetelia, sizzling karsilamades, and more. They sing and play
      bouzouki, kanun, violin, guitar, oud, baglamas and dumbek. Rebetika (or
      Rembetika), sometimes called the Greek blues, originated in the early 1900s
      in the cities near the Aegean Sea -- cities such as Athens, Istanbul, and
      Smyrna (modern day Izmir). A musical mixture of East and West, and in a
      sense, the original fusion, it is at times sorrowful, at others bawdy. The
      songs reflect the difficulties and joys of life in that era.
