In this workshop we will learn folk songs from different parts of Greece, focusing on the stylistic details of each region: the ornaments, the musical intervals, the rhythmic nuances etc.
At the same time we will get a glance at the ethnographic background of each song, the rituals that it accompanies and its place within the yearly circle of festivities.
Studying songs from different regions, we will try to find the connections between Greek folk singing and the larger tradition of modal music in the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean.
