Traditional Greek Music Radio Podcast

In the first episode of Αγάπη, Τσίπουρο, Μπουζούκι & Roll we focused on the literary-musical tradition of Ερωτόκριτος. We now return to the island of myths and legends, the land of Minos and the Minotaur – the beautiful and mysterious Crete! However, this time we will have a broader look at Κρητικά, Cretan traditional music. And we count with the help of Νίκος Κατσιρντάκης, dance teacher at Σύλλογος Δωδεκανησίων Φοιτητών Θεσσαλονίκης, to explore the labyrinths of Crete!
