Stavros and the Pontiakilira - Greece

Stavros and the Pontiakilira - Greece. I Love Music! 7’

Ran Magier

Stavros lives in Greece and its history follows him around in each of his activities. He plays the pontiakilira, the instrument that was used as early as the times of his ancestors, and prepares his costume for the traditional dance he will be a part of in a show in his community. Stavros is proud of his Pontic origins and thinks that music and dance preserve tradition and keep together the community he is a part of. The pontiakilira fascinates him because its few strings are capable of stirring a wide range of emotion.
