The band specializes in the Rembetiko style which evolved in the period between 1880-1950.Following in the path of The well known jewish performer Roza Eskenazi. The name, Perach Adom, means Red Flower in English, symbolizing love (flower) and pain (red). The Hebrew lyrics were written by Tomer Katz in the spirit of the Greek lyrics, and they evoke memories of Rembetiko and the Greek landscape, as well as the Israeli experience.
