Domna SamiouA whole year passed since the death of the great lady of the Greek traditional song, Domna Samiou. A tribute will be held to her memory in order to honour and revere her personality and values. A solemn ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 18, at 20:30 at the High School Events Hall.

Her work and offer to the rescue and spread of our musical tradition is priceless. Dionysis Savvopoulos said characteristically about her and her contribution: "She is the profound Greece, beauty and freedom. She is the eternal spring that helps us get out of the impasse. Such people cannot be forgotten."

Her love for the musical tradition of our island directed her to Skiathos, as early as the end of 1960’s, to take the responsibility for the recording of the local traditional songs with a ten kilo old bobbin cassette recorder, which entailed many personal expenses and required inexhaustible enthusiasm. She endeavored to capture in sound and later successfully with the "Musical Travelogue" on ERT the last body of work of our undersigning traditional music.

In Skiathos she joined with locals and alleged from Asia Minor residents in Skiathos, who sung many beautiful songs both of the island and Asia Minor, which were used in many versions of her LPs, but also in concerts, both in Greece and abroad.
