One big advantage of visiting Greece in the summer is the chance to experience a ‘nisiotiko glenti’, that is a popular gathering with music, dance and food, a must in the islands of Cyclades like Andros. They are usually held on the main village square and they are a marvelous opportunity to bring together families and friends. The Aegean islands have an important folk dance tradition, originating from the dances of ancient Greece, like syrtos, sousta and ballos. Unlike other music types, the nisiotika (island songs) of Andros and all other Cycladic islands, retain their connection to the folk tradition. Feasting, music and dance were always deeply embedded in the life of Andros’ locals, being means of expressing feelings and emotions, as well as antidotes to adversity and sorrow.
