Mandolin in Greece

Project Description

The Best Kantades from Ionian Islands – CD by Fotis Aleporos (~1983)

This is an old recording with Fotis Aleporos Mandolin Orchestra & Choir. I played the octave mandolin with this orchestra from 1976-2007.

I was surprised to find that the CD is now being sold in Ioanian Islands (Cephalonia, Corfu etc.). I bought a copy myself during the summer of 2014, while on vacation at beautiful Caphalonia.
