Bouzouki Pioneer, 1932-1940 Mrkos, the "Patriarch" of the bouzoki, was born dirt poor on the island of Syros and came up in the slums of Piraeus. ". . . there I was initiated into the harsh life of a working man, married for the first time, got hooked on hashish, and, above all, was seduced by that instrument -- the bouzoki." "The man was an inexhaustible river. If he"d lived a thousand years, he"d have gone on writing beautiful Rembetica." --Spyros Garzas
