The bouzouki in its present form appeared recently in the Greek culture. Other versions of string instruments have been around since the antiquity. However our well known bouzouki lifetime begins in the 1900’s when it was brought to Greece by Greek immigrants. So it is an instrument that our grandfathers listened to and learned how to play as well. Fair to say it has been carved in our DNA as we know of no world without the bouzouki.

However the above are true for any instrument.
The difference and added benefit in learning the bouzouki is that you also connect with the Greek culture that stretches throughout the centuries. The thought that my grandfather who I never met probably listened to the bouzouki and to bouzouki melodies at some point in the 50’s Constantinople gives chills. There is a connection there that revolves around the identity of what being Greek means.
Maybe the grandfather also learned how to play the bouzouki at some point. And if he was around today I bet he would be ecstatic to listen to me play or dance. I bet he ‘d want to join me as well.
