Vocal Music in Crete CD

  • $1599

This album, produced and edited by Tullia Magrini, is the last in the acclaimed series produced by the International Institute for Traditional Music. It presents rare recordings of rizitika, mandinakhes, and tabakhaniotika made in Western Crete in 1977-1982. Sung by solosits and groups, sometimes with instrumental accompaniment, these song genres have a deep connection with traditional life and the history of Crete itself. Extensive annotations by renowned Italian ethnomusicologists, Tullia Magrini and Roberto Leydi, describe traditional Cretan vocal styles and the complex performance of the verse structures. Texts are given in Greek, with English translation. 72 minutes. 36-page booklet with extensive bibliography.
