"EVRITIKI ZYGIA live IN TRIPOLI"

 
In a feast with music and dances from all around Greece, Thrace was particularly highlighted and had a special place. Either we play in Thrace, however, either in Peloponnese, the image of the feast and the people's reaction remains the same and unchanged, as can be seen, listening to the sounds of the bagpipe and lyra. We thank Laographiki Esti of Tripoli and people of Peloponnese for the great response to our music.
