from Ap' ti Thespotía (General Music 2012) —This begins a set of pieces from Epirus, the most Northwesterly of the Greek provinces.


Σέας Γκίκας “Κάτω Εκεί Στην Άσπρη Πέτρα”
from Τα Πολυφωνικά 1 (General Music) —Epirus, like neighboring south Albania, is known forits polyphonic vocal tradition


Σέας Γκίκας “Αυτά Τα Μάτια Δήμο Μου Κλπ...”
from Τα Πολυφωνικά 1 (General Music)


Zina Giannouli “Tha Thymatai o Enas ton Allo”

from Giasemaki mou tou Man (Panivar 2003)


Fm Records soloists “Έρι Έρι”
from Ελλήνων Παράδοσις 13: 18 Νησιώτικα (FM) —this great song begins with a solo on the sandouri, the Greek hammer dulcimer


Fm Records soloists “Μπάλος”
from Ελλήνων Παράδοσις 13: 18 Νησιώτικα (FM) —more from the western Greek Islands, the Ballos is a couple dance, a form almost unknown in the Eastern Islands except for "no-touch" face to face dances.


Zaharias Melesanakis “Μελεσανάκης / πεντοζάλια”
from οι χωροί της Κρήτης (Panivar) —This is a Pentozali - "the five times dizzy" dance, done in a shoulder hold, mainly by men in the old days. this dance begins a long set of songs and dances from Crete, the largest of the Greek Islands.


Βασιλης Σκουλας “Στο Ξέσπασμα Του Φεγγάριου”

Nikos & Manolis Karavirakis “Kritikos-Stiakos Pidihtos”
from Crete: Best of Music & Dances [Disc 2] (FM) —a pidhtos is a "leaping dance" - not literally, but the name is meant to distinguish it from the more Earth-bound forms like the Syrto


Manolis Manouras “Doloma rihno den tsibas”
from Pentozalia (Panivar) —a slow Pentozali, unusual because the main instrument is the Sandouri (hammer dulcimer). The Sandouri was more traditionally used in the Dodecanese Islands off Turkey and in the urban music of Smyrna and Constantinople/Istanbul


Nikos Sopasis “San paei i ora dodeka”
from Pentozalia (Panivar)
