Q&A with Italian filmmaker artist and animator, Thomas Künstler - made a stop motion animation on rebetiko and Markos Vamvakaris

"Mainly I see rural folk music as a manifestation of how well a given culture resists assimilation and influence from the outside. A robust folk music can only exist if it has confidence in itself, if it esteems itself and if its purpose is embraced by the community that created it."
