Synopsis

Traveling solo through the back roads of Greece, the author uncovers a glimpse into the modern history and soul of Greece as reflected in its music and dance. In a village hidden in the hills outside of the legendary Thebes, older men recall and sing a song in the 14th Century dialect of their Albanian ancestors. At a concert of polyphonic music, the voices produce animal-like howls, odd harmonies and unusual intervals in these rarely heard musical expressions. And we meet a middle-aged Greek woman who recounts her experiences as a young girl caught in the Greek Civil War.
