MARKOS VAMVAKARIS MUSEUM
The Markos Vamvakaris Museum captures the island’s artistic personality through the exceptional collections of this authentic composer.
A voice perfectly intertwined with the “rebetiko” style of music succeeded in familiarizing all Greeks with the beauties of Syros with the most beloved song “Fragosyriani” thus showing his love for his homeland. To honor the works of this exceptional songwriter the people of Syros founded the Markos Vamvakaris Museum in a renovated but traditional home in the heart of Ano Syros so as to take visitors back in time through the voice, the lyrics and the life lead by this beloved “rempeti”, through his personal belongings, his photos, manuscripts and clothing through a half-hour documentary showcasing his life in the basement of the museum. From the bust in his honor found on the homonymous square all the way to the museum a great tribute has been paid to this “Patriarch” of Rembetika music.
Working Hours: Saturday – Sunday, From 12:30 to 18:30
