Markos Vamvakaris (10 May 1905 in Ano Syros (aka Ano Chora) in Syros – 8 February 1972 in Athens, Greece) (Greek: Μάρκος Βαμβακάρης), was a rebetiko musician. He is universally referred to by rebetiko writers and fans simply by his first name, Markos. The great significance of Vamvakaris for the rebetiko is also reflected by his nickname; the "patriarch of rebetiko" (O Πατριάρχης).
