 Maria Louka and Giorgos Zacharioudakis have created the Cretan Winds group and invite you on a musical journey throughout Greece to listen to and learn the Kalandas and holiday customs of each region.  In the festive atmosphere of Christmas, we created a small educational musical performance, with carols and festive music from various regions of our country (Ikaria, Chios, Thrace, Crete, Peloponnese, etc.) so that the children, within an hour,  come into contact with the sounds of each place.  At the same time, there is a demonstration of the traditional instruments used, such as the wind instruments (ascobandura, thiambolia), the lyre, the lute and the percussion. 
In the performance, the construction and use of the instruments are explained as well as elements from the Greek tradition.  Thus the child comes into contact with sounds and instruments that contribute to the cultural heritage of each place.

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 nine 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.
