Folk Dances of Greece

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.
