    Default Greek mandolin music

    to come into the "Greek mood", because of a planned journey in Athens - on classical mandolin - I was orientating. A Dutch musician and lover of Greek music recommended me a Greek mandolin player, Loudovikos ton Anogeian.
    He sings and accompanies himself on the mandolin.
    I saw on the video he works with only 4 strings. On youtube there are different videos. Many of them are - of course- written with his name in Greek letters.
    Here is one:

    Enjoy !

    Here a new try.

    Sometimes his name is written Loudovicus ton Anogion

    I found a site with lots of notated Greek tunes. It is no longer online for some reason but I did resurrect and link the tunes here:

    Staying in the Greek, by way of Crete, mood, I was exploring the albums of Ross Daly few weeks ago and i'd well recommend them to anyone interested in that area of music.

    The music from my video of Hasapiko (fast) has been used in the following video - maybe you like it and learn how "normal" oranges from Greece are treated.
