Museum shows there's more to Greek music than bouzoukis

Yahoo! Music News - Mon, 02/16/2015 - 18:18

Visitor looks at bells displayed at the Museum of Greek Folk Musical Instruments in AthensBy Jeremy Gaunt ATHENS(Reuters) - Tucked away in a corner of Athens' historic Plaka district is a small museum showing that there is more to Greek music than "Zorba's Dance" and "Never on Sunday". In fact, the Museum of Greek Folk Musical Instruments, or MELMOKE, contains barely any bouzoukis, the quintessential Greek instrument that often accompanies the smashing of plates in overseas Greek restaurants. "Traditional music was live until recently," said Petros Moustakas, a musicologist at MELMOKE, which is designed to protect the heritage and keep the old way going. Modern Greek music is very popular in Greece and unlike many European countries the local fare tends to outnumber English and American imports in music shops.
