This was new to me - I didn't even know that this regime/state ever existed - and will probably be news to other medieval music wonks here.

Raimbaut de Vaqueiras wrote what might be the most-recorded song of the entire Middle Ages but I had no idea he was ever in that part of the world.

It's an interesting statement for Greek musicians to take this on. Rather like an Iraqi Arabic band doing a CD of American music from the Baghdad Green Zone.

(I haven't heard or read it yet).

Gee, I've been to Thessaloniki and know about Alexander the Great and visited the grave of his father Phillip II, but I had never heard of the Latin Kingdom of Thessalonica. Turns out the kingdom was founded by Crusaders in 1204, and fell to Epirus in 1224. 20 years, and it was gone.
