Glikeria sings Sti magemeni Arapia, a Greek song which means “In the magic Arabia”. The song is one of the known rebetika songs, written by the important Greek Composer Giorgos Mitsakis.
Rebetika songs have always been dealing with themes related to Arabia, Middle East and their charms. For the Greek Urban society of the mid 20th century, Arabia was the land of allure and temptation, a place beautiful and exotic, thus it was commonly referred to in many songs.
The song’s theme is mainly erotic; a trip to the magic and exotic Arabia for two lovers, who want to leave, to go far away – although Middle East is not that far away from Greece, the exotic character makes it seem far and away. Love can actually make the two partners feel like the Maharajahs; rich in feelings and love.
