Episode 1: Ερωτόκριτος (Crete)

Radio Set Up

Dear listeners, welcome to Αγάπη, Τσίπουρο, Μπουζούκι & Roll – the radio show that will take you by the ear to the wonders of the Hellenic musicality! Your travelling agency presenters will be Bernardo Guerra Machado and Pauline Quentel. Each week we will invite a guest to be our tour guide in this ethnographic journey. The objective is to focus on a specific region and its traditional music in each episode. Still, there will also be special ones dedicated to specific genres – so you can undoubtedly count with a trip to Ρεμπέτικα, Greek Progressive Rock, Ethnic Jazz, and many many others… 

In this first episode, our colleague Κατερίνα Σταύρου will explore Ερωτόκριτος, a folkloric tradition originated in the island of Crete during its Renaissance period.

Every Thursday at 21h00, we take off!
