Songs and Dances Of Epirus Vol. 1: 1930-1957

Two volumes of haunting vintage music from the Greek region of Epirus. Great stuff. I've begun to realize how much I love the clarinet in Greek songs, especially when its playing lead or is used to shadow a strong vocal melody. 256 kbps. Posted by request.
