Dancing on the Off-Beat - Travels in Greece

By Friedberg, Joan Carol

X-Libris "The Greece of fun-loving waiters, sun-drenched beaches, the breaking of plates, and big fat weddings only scratches the surface of the real Greece. In this account of a woman traveling solo throughout the Greek mainland, Joan Carol Friedberg uncovers a glimpse into the tragic history of modern Greece as it is reflected in the music, and she provides a context for understanding Greece's compelling and unique musical expressions. In 1982, the author spent three months traveling in the Balkans, through Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey. Drawn to Greece's traditional music and dances, she returned to Greece in 1993. During several subsequent trips, as a foreigner in search of Greece's village music and dance traditions, she collected and in Dancing on the Off Beat - Travels in Greece shares her observations with humor, clarity, insight and wisdom. Though many books have been written about Greece, few foreigners have uncovered the more unusual aspects of this ancient land. Like Patrick Leigh Fermor's Roumeli, Joan Carol Friedberg takes the reader along as she discovers Greece's back roads and hidden folkways. She found the old tradition of offering hospitality to strangers still survives, as she was welcomed like a long-lost relative in rural villages and offered food and drink. She has delved deep into modern Greek history to find the wellspring behind the inherent melancholy that often pervades Greek folk music.". 1st US Ed.. Soft Cover. New Book from Publisher.
