"Bright Balkan Morning"


(system) #1

Hi everyone,

Again, I have to write in English-have to find out how to get back the Greek characters on my job computer! Anyway, here’s a book that might be of interest. It’s about Roma (Gypsy) musicians in Iraklia near Serres. It’s written by Vellou-Keil, who also wrote the Vamvakaris bio, together with her husband. From what I remember it wasn’t that well received here…but this one seems well-researched. There are lots if photos, as well as a sample CD:

I have a PDF file with a review of the book, from “The Journal of Modern Greek Studies”. If you’re interested, let me know, and I’ll send it.

All the best, Eva
