In this video a serious point is made by one of the Hellenes of Calabria, 'these songs we are singing are directly from the ancient times, we dont sing about religion or christ, we sing about love...."

You will need to use a little abstract thought to connect the two....

Good reminder, wyoming cowboy. :)

There are pockets of Hellenic-Greeks residing in many corners of the Mediterranean-linked regions. Steadfast 'remnants' of thousands of years of culture and civilisation, linked by a common language and family ethos. Yes, shame to those foreign invaders of our Mediterranean lands who have infiltrated to destroy the bulwarks of civilised Humanity.

Europe would be nothing without the Greeks!

So cowboy, when an American of German descent who lives in Chicago, sings an English song, a dweller in the Island of Man is justified to feel proud of his englishness?

Many rich and varied tales of Humanity.

In that recently occupied/colonised land of the USA; that German is still using his German-derived name and probably practicing the same religion. Its President knows full well there are many in Africa who are awfully proud to have him running that country. Back in the Isle of Wight, that dweller is very proud English has become the Global language. Different tales.

- In this case, it is the Griko people themselves who are proud to preserve their heritage:

"In 1996 the Griko population founded a Union of the municipalities of Grecia Salentina. The purpose of this union was to endorse the knowledge of Griko and preserve its culture, by organizing research at the university, teaching the language at schools, publishing books and poetry in the endangered dialect."wiki


Let us not dismiss the fact differences exist in how "who get where and when", just because some here prefer to, so quickly, embrace the most recent invader in Cyprus.

the point is, is that you cannot destroy the Greek spirit, and its alive in southern Italy, Cyprus and Greece, and anywhere a Greek is alive.
