Dimitris Mystakidis reinterprets in his own personal manner rembetika that were written by Greek immigrants in the United States from 1890 to 1930. Rembetiko fingerpicking, the “tsibiti” technique, was developed in the United States in the beginning of the 20th century. Influenced by the fingerpicking technique of Afroamerican bluesmen, Greek musicians embraced the distinct open tunings they found in America, creating an original guitar playing technique.
