Zacharias Spyridakis - Cretan Music

Zacharias Spyridakis - Cretan Music

This workshop will deal with all aspects of Cretan music, starting with a short historical introduction, as well as a short introduction in the construction method of the Cretan lyra. Students will then work with tunings, technique, repertoire and a short introduction to songs, through which they will familiarise themselves with the different local idioms of Cretan music. The workshop aims to organise musical ensembles with all participating students.

Suggested instruments: Lyra, Lute, Mandolin, Saz, Violin, Guitar, Percussion
