A treat for all of you who love Pogonisius and Beratis (see below). Here is a short history of a clarinetist from Epirus. Pericles Halkias. I am sure you will enjoy it and encourage you to subscribe to the CMTD archive. As also to read Lament from Epirus which prompted this research in me. It is my earnest desire to awaken an interest in traditional forms of music and dance in this age when the overall demand is for instant pleasure and immediate response. Here the musicians respond to the dancers as they in turn respond to the musicians. So different from today when both turn aside from one another to their own indulgence – in the world of traditional music as well as in the world of modern pop.
