Kamilierikos (Greek: καμηλιέρικος χορός) or kamilieriko, is a kind of a Greek traditional dance, similar with fast zeibekiko and antikristos.[1] The Kamilierikos was danced by prisoned rebetes. Riders of the camels (καμηλιέρηδες) used to dance it as well. Today, kamilierikos is very widespread in rebetiko and laiko music traditions.
