This book explores the musical legacy of the Anatolian Greek diaspora following the Greco-Turkish War of 1919–1922, through the music and dance practices of Greek refugees and their descendants over the last hundred years.
According to the author, the book “explores the legacy of the late Ottoman ethos of pluralism and intercommunality through the music and dance practices of Greeks from the Aegean coast of Asia Minor, Lesvos, and their descendants both in Greece and the US, particularly the greater Boston area. . . .And there are some explicit EEFC connections: the book features quite a bit of conversation with and reflections on the work of several folks who you all know and love, including Sophia Bilides, Joe Kaloyanides Graziosi, Dean Lampros, and a few others.”
