  • Greek, Contemporary
  • Mainland Laouto
  • English

Description

This course will be an introduction to the laouto as both accompaniment and solo instrument, and to the rich musical tradition of Epirus in northwestern Greece. We will cover laouto technique, phrasing and scales' positions while learning exercises to help us produce the best possible sound on the instrument. We will focus on pieces from Epirus along with other regions in mainland Greece, and cover three main makam families (Nikriz, Hijaz and Segah). The repertoire will include “Liaskos,” karsilamas “Konstantinoupoleos” and “Silivrias,” and “Driminitsa.” We will also discuss various musical phrases in skaros (shepherd’s songs) and moiroloi (lament songs), two of the most well known song forms in the music of Epirus.   This course is for students comfortable on the laouto, able to play scales and some pieces. By the end of this course, you will have a broader understanding of the role of the laouto in the music of Epirus and other mainland styles, be able to accompany in various rhythms, and perform a few instrumental compositions.
