Invited by our musician host to spend an evening with friends, we do have great time: we share delicious dishes, grilled fish and meat, vegetable pie, potatoes with garlic around a bread oven that heats the small house; there is plenty of raki and the atmosphere is so friendly.
Bouzouki, lauto, guitar, oud, flute, maracasses, tambourine and accordion keep company to the songs. From Macedonia to Crete, Greek folk music is alive!
Music and raki will bring us up to the morning … Thank you to you passionate musicians!
Vasilis or « Billy » hostes us to Arta. As many young people in this city, he walks around with his instrument and plays traditional Greek music in taverns … and dreams of playing beyond the borders of his country.
