Jay presents the Sound of Epirus

Spotlight

A special show about the music of Epirus, a region of southern-eastern Europe now divided between north-east Greece and southern Albania.

The mention of the music of Epirus evokes the sound of a sobbing, down-bending clarinet, on the slow tunes like Escher’s ever-descending staircase.

The mix contains folk songs, mostly pentatonic and polyphonic, characterized as relaxed, gentle and beautifully sung by both male & female singers.
