Don't forget to look in the topic "Greek dancing, what steps to make" cause there is also a lot of music in that one.

OK., OK I know that its the wrong topic for music (eis ena tragoudi akoma) B) but it ended up that way as an answer to Dinny's problem with the steps to make B) (also ena tragoudi akoma)

Am not sure if I dare ask this question.

But where and when does the Arabic influence in Cretan music comes in? B)

Thank you SuzyCC

That explains it all. Very informative indeed. Wonder if the Cretans are aware of this?

Hi Wim,just read with interest your bit about the Arabic influence and Suzys link.
A close friend of mine who IS Cretan,Vasilis who runs "Posto" cafe/bar at Bali,spends many hours study on various aspects of Greek/Cretan history,and is very well read.
He revealed to me last year,after a great deal of research into old Cretan dialect,he had come to a conclusion he was afraid to tell the locals about.
He is convinced that much of the old dialect can be traced back to Arabic do to the fact that long ago,Crete was invaded by an Arabic war lord,who was so taken with the place,he destoyed his own ships,and ordered his army to take Cretan women as wives which gave rise to much of the Arab influences.
Interesting theory.True or not,Ive allways felt Crete has a feel of many cultures about it.
If you ever visit Bali,please look up Vasilis,a entertaining and very interesting guy!Steve.B

Yes Steve that is very true.

Would be interesting to meet him one day and when there I certainly will. I knew about the Phoenician inheritance and the Turkish I can imagine that he's afraid to tell :o .



In the meantime here is my favorite singer "Psarantonis live in O Dias"

And this one makes me shiver, besides this one too And how about some music to dance the Pentozalis .


And a little tour? And some more?







Pff.

The song is "Helidoni sto klouvi" (Swallow in cage).
The lyrics are by Nikos Gatsos and the music by Manos Hatzidakis.
Both Grigoris Bithikotsis and Manolis Mitsias have performed this somg.

Here is Psarantonis again. My absolute favorit.

And even some more. This one is a variation on the theme (the opening, the variation, the end ) of the Concierto De Aranjuez (Adagio) composed by Joaquin Rodrigo.

Hi folks,

Would it be interesting to get this group again to Kreta one day?

http://www.anokato.n...lish/index.html This link is loaded with music and info.

They organise workshops, in 2005 and 2006 they were in Mirtos (click workshops), it could make a great holiday when you are into Cretan/Greek music and if you play a violin or guitar or whatever. Read all about them and listen to " το γρύλλος" in the Cretan night.

I am in touch with them so if you are interested?

In the Community Portal you have read about the Cretan Mantinades. If you are interested to know how it is used in the Cretan music than follow this link.
