There is a profound warmth and joy of life that oozes from traditional Greek rebetiko music. It almost inescapably brings movement and dance to the body. Zorba’s Dance, the iconic sirtaki written by the Greek musical and political resistance composer Mikis Theodorakis and immortalized by Anthony Quinn in the 1964 film Zorba the Greek, is one of those irresistible pieces.

Listening to our Music of the Week, I bet you will dance along!
