Kita me

"Κita me" (Look at me) is a modern rendition of a folk song from the region of Drama, a city in Northern Greece, called "Look at me my sweet love" which speaks of the era when one left the countryside to fight or go to the city for work, most likely never to return. It is a hymn to true love and the hope of 'next meeting'.

Sfagi

This folk poem originates from the wider region of Epirus and Central Greece, and its age exceeds two centuries. 

It is written in iambic fifteen syllables, while over the years a verbal insertion (crunch) was added to the first half verse, “- my countryman, reigned -“, in order to adapt the poem to the rhythmic pattern of the song.

The “crunch” was something common in folk dance songs and it was a peculiar technique that served the asymmetric structure, so that the verse could correspond to the dancing moves and movements. The rhythm is “Tsamikos” (6/8).
