Various - Songs And Dances Of Greece mp3 album

Folk Songs & Dances. Folk Songs & Dances.

The songs are played mainly in the following tempos: Syrtos (various versions), Tsamiko, Ballos and Pentozali (Crete). The Aegean islands of Greece are known for Nisiótika (means from islands) songs; Greek characteristics vary widely. Although the basis of the sound is characteristically secular-Byzantine, the relative isolation of the islands allowed the separate development of island-specific Greek music. Folk dances in Cyclades include lerikos, syrtos, syrtos Serifou, syrtos Naxou, syrtos Kythnou, Amorgos dance and ballos. One of the most famous singers of cycladic music is Domna Samiou. In Dodacanese there are prominent elements of Cretan music.

Recorded by James Notopoulos in 1956, Folk Dances of Greece is the second release in his series on the musical and oratory traditions of Greece. He writes: The dance is one of the most vital social and artistic expressions of the Greek people as well as one of its oldest traditions. As our ancient sources reveal, the dances were many and varied; they gave expression to all phases of life, such as fertility, religion, war. Liner notes include detailed descriptions of the dances, translated lyrics, and musical transcriptions provided by Spyros Peristeres. RELATED ALBUMS Folk Music of Greece.
