Chimelougali is yodelling; luchenze is hooting whilst darting the tongue from side to side; kuama are trembling sounds, and rhythmic interjections. Including polyphonies, and a few with instruments.

Highly rhythmic ensembles of percussion, flutes, whistles and trumpets from the mountainous north of the country; and brilliant pichanchalassi playing, five flat stones struck with two oval stones.

Marvellous late recordings by this champion of Greek popular song, inimitably spinning it together with more acceptable forms like the candada, and Arabic, Andalusian and Gypsy influences. Killer buzuki taxims.
