Αγάπη, Τσίπουρο, Μπουζούκι & Roll doesn’t cease to travel! This time, the Dear Listeners are invited to get to know the brass wonders hiden in the Μακεδονικά traditional music of Central-West Macedonia. Land of many empires, notably the one built by Alexandre The Great, and with a very rich history, Macedonia was a beloved tresure for the Hellenic, the Romans, the Byzantine, the Slavs, the crusaders, the Ottomans, and the Hebrews! It was also the home of many Greek refugees – so the Dear Listeners might need a map to navigate within all this cultural diversity. Still, to make sure you never get lost, we can count with the guidance of Σίμος Ντίνης, from Χάλκινα Ηχοχρώματα!
