AllMusic Review by

This CD from the Musical Travel series by the French label SILEX/Auvidis gives a broad overview of the traditional music from Greece. It includes traditional as well as few contemporary songs, including one a capella; instrumental pieces, many with the typical bouzouki, as well as other instruments, such as the liraki, a fiddle, or the karamouza, an oboe, including some other rarely heard instruments. We also hear more modern instruments, like the electric and the acoustic guitars. This CD gives a pertinent glimpse of the diversity of Greece traditional music.
