Dimitra Galani, Eleni Tsaligopoulo, Imam Baildi at Festival Vyrona July 29, 2010

Two worlds come together on the same stage. Dimitra Galani and Helen Tsaligopoulou. The new experiences and old memories shared on stage. Seven passionate musicians – together for one night.

A highlight of the evening is “laiko program “. This is a great chance to experience some of Greece’s best known Greek songs, and perhaps experience that special feeling I get when the audience members become an intergral part of the performance as they join in song with the performers. Though the Manolis Bouzouki quartet will accompany Galani, Tsaligopoulou and Imam Baildi and Tsitsanis Zambetas – perhaps the stronges voices you’ll hear all evening will be those of the Greek surrounding you.

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
