audio sample (track): 

Written in 1999, recorded in 2011 and published 2012 on the album Nostalgia, Palikaria is an instrumental with a Mediterranean feel, sunny and light mood and simple orchestration.

The title Pailkaria (Παλικάρια) means 'lads' in English, often associated with the Greek islands. And this tune is so much in the style of the Nisiotika - the islands' music of Greece. Acoustic guitar and baglamas telling and re-telling a simple, sunny story in a sirto rhythm.
