Traditional Greek Music Radio Podcast

Αγάπη, Τσίπουρου, Μπουζούκι & Roll would be incomplete without a special episode dedicated to the traditional music of Cyprus. Not only Greece and Cyprus share many common roots, as both countries have a certain passion for dedicating songs to each other (and exchange votes at Eurovision). In this episode full of surprises and guests, we will have Δημήτρης Παναγή and Ραφαέλλος Αγαπίου playing live music – and Μαργαρίτα Γεωργιάδου smoking cigarettes while discussing delicate political issues. Welcome to 2021, enjoy the journey!
