He was part of the movement that brought down the Greek military Junta of 1967. His songs and music captured and described the Greek psyche and demeanour, gaining himself the title of archangel of Crete. Xylouris died in 1980 of a brain tumor.

Lydia

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
