Music from Albania

These are a number of old 78 rpm recordings of music from Albania that I have had in my collection for many years. I no longer have the information that appeared on the records themselves, only the tape copies. They are interesting enough that I have thought they might be worth sharing. If anyone who comes across these can identify titles of performers, I should be pleased to have this information and will add it. All the recordings are here in MP3 file format.

Music from Epirus 

Stylistically very similar to the music of Albania in spite of the vast differences between the two languages, the music of the Northwestern region is disctinct from all other types of Greek music. Here again I have only most general indication of what these are, but a little more information than for the Albanian sides.

2. epirus-78-dance-song

3. epirus-78-miorologhia

4. epirus-78-skaros 

5. epirus-78-tsamara

6. epirus-78-tsamiko

7. epirus-78-vocal-group

8. epirus-78-vocal-group-2
