The first month of Where Art & Grief Meet is dedicated to my brother, Hector. He was a beautiful man and a truly gifted musician, with his chosen speciality being Rembetika/Smyrnaika. This audio is from his final public performance, recorded at Armenistis in Athens at 3am on 7 March, 2012. He died on the night of 8 March 2012.
