The soils of Greece, as the philosopher Plato noted more than 2,000 years ago, are thin and poor, and over much of the country the bare rock shows at the surface. Yet from this soil grew one of the greatest civilizations in the history of the Western World. Here is the music of this ancient island nation, and it's equally ancient sister, Cyprus. The folk dances, ritual and ceremonial songs and instruments of a hundred generations are preserved here in this unique compilation, carefully gathered by Lyrichord. "Folk Music of Greece and Cyprus" offers a rare, honest glimpse at the musical culture and rituals of these Ancient people, free from the glossy, romantic, veneer, borne of more than a century of tourism.
