ERT World will broadcast, this Sunday, December 17, 2023 at 04:00 (Athens time), the second part of the concert “When I Forget, I Feel Joyful” which took place at the Athens Concert Hall and was organized by the International Center for Epirus Music.

The second part of the concert includes “Songs of Love.” This collection of songs from Epirus are widely sung and familiar even today. The joy of love and its sorrows, the wedding, the inevitable yet fruitless love, the radiance of human beauty, and the limitation of all the above due to conservative social conditions, have been basic components for their creation and preservation.

The program includes songs from the bride’s wedding preparation, characteristic instrumental tunes danced throughout Epirus, and songs of love from Ioannina, Zagori, Metsovo, Kalarrytes, and Syrrako in Tzoumerka, Pogoni, Parakalamos, Souli and Thesprotia, Konitsa, Preveza and also Sarakatsanika songs.

The concert features fifty musicians and singers from Epirus and eighty-five dancers from the ‘Lyceum of Greek Women’ in Athens. They were accompanied by veteran singers from various regions of Epirus. The polyphonic ensemble ‘Inoro’ is also featured in the performance.

Artistic Advisors: Lefteris Drandakis, Nikos Zekis, Tasos Plitsis
