A unique regional event of folk tradition and gastronomic character dedicated to Attica. A celebration of local cultural elements that constitute a rich and fascinating heritage.
The aim is to spotlight the more intangible aspects of Greek cultural heritage, presenting inclusive, community-led customs and institutions that revolve around the wealth of Greek music and dance and articulate the way of life of local people in a manner that words cannot.

He is accompanied by Kostas Kikilis on the violin;
Thomas Konstantinou on oud and lute;
Manousos Klapakis on percussion;
Giorgos Skordalos on the Cretan lyre and vocal
