There doesn't seem to be a protocal for introducing oneself in this forum, but this is my first post; you can find out more about me at
my web site.

I'd like to call attention to a little known artist who I think many people on this forum might like, the Greek songwriter/arranger/musician Ludovikos ton Anogeion. The name is a stage name for George Dramountanis and means "Ludovicus from Anogeia", Anogeia being a village in Crete. Ludovicus is the sort of artist like Duke Ellington, whose instrument is his band and singers. His work is unique in achieving a seamless blend of traditional Cretan folk music, more recent Greek styles such as Neo Kyma and rebetika, and modern Western European and American influences like jazz and folk rock. His music tends to be laid back: it's the type which can serve equally well as easy or serious listening. He's also a talented lyricist, and some of his lines are very beautiful. The CDs (which are excellently packaged) often give lyrics, though so far as I remember, only in Greek.

I won't recommend specific CDs, since they are all good, and the question is not which ones you should find but which ones you can find. Though moderately popular in Greece, Ludovikos ton Anogeion seems to have made little impact in other countries: there is Wikipedia page on him consisting only of a single line, and only one of his CDs is on the US Amazon. The best bet is to try an on line specialist in Greek Music such as or to try a Greek imports shop, such as are usually found in most major cities of the English speaking world.

Thanks. I've always been interested in folk music since I was in high school, but I've only been looking at Mudcat occasionally for a year or so. It's a valuable site, but it's kind of daunting on first approach in a forest-and-trees sort of way.
