TRADITION FROM YESTERDAY TO TODAY

GNV (Greek Natural Videos) presents a journey through the traditions of yesterday to today;  this time praising Northern Evros and highlighting its natural beauty.

 

New compositions closely follow old traditions

and old traditional songs of Thrace are harmoniously connected with the cultural heritage of Northern Evros. 

 

Didymoteicho Castle, Arda river, Pythio Castle, The City of Silk in Soufli and many other places are presented with the

aim of highlighting the traditional music and instruments of Thrace.

 

Gaida, kavali and drums combine with our classical guitar, violin, tzoura and voices.

 

ALEXANDER´S MOTHER

Mixalis Iliaskos & Vangelis Papanastasiou

 

 

The collaboration of Mixalis Iliaskos and Vangelis Papanastasiou is the beginning of a new reality that leaves its own mark and opens new horizons and a brilliant field of creation.

 

This is an important song by Giannis Markopoulos with lyrics by Theodoridis Panos.

 

Here the country itself is the mother of Alexander,

and her son the transnational gift through which she illustrates

the character of our old culture.
