We convinced him to play some songs for us despite the fact that he already had played all evening in a restaurant. So he opened his bouzouki case again, took out his bouzouki and sang and played a couple of songs for us. This is pure music, a voice and a bouzouki, nothing more!
I was glad to have my audio recorder with me. Here is one of the songs he sang in that night: "S'agapo yiati eisai oraia". A beautiful traditional song originating from Asia Minor. Listen and sit with us - at least acoustically - at our table in that night of September 27th, 2008.
In the background you can even hear the music of a tavern nearby.
The photos of Jiannis depicted in this presentation I took in the summer of 2008 at a different site in Pythagorio called "Notos".
