Andros Traditional Music | by Nick and Augustis - Track 3

Nisiotika is a music genre that is very popular among Greeks


Nisiotika (nisi means island in Greek) is one the most distinctive categories of Greek music and songs, mainly referring to the music created in the islands of the Aegean Sea. Unlike other music types, the nisiotika of Andros and all other Cycladic islands, retain their connection to the folk tradition. They are light songs with a gentle rhythm  and their catchy tone made them popular with the wider public. In the ‘50’s and ‘60’s however the nisiotika songs lost their original appeal but in the ‘70’s managed to find again their way to the Greek hearts and…feet thanks to the fact that many singers and composers decided to support this genre, along with the ‘rebetika’ and ‘laika’, or any other genre that had been neglected or underrated by the sudden urbanization of Greece.
