This Island Life, examines aspects of life on the Aegean Sea island of Ikaria.
On Sunday, May 25th, 2008, I and members of my family attended the wedding of Mihali Stamoulou and Triantafilyia Tsante at Monokambi, on the Greek island of Ikaria. This video attempts to document that wedding and the reception that followed. The music you can hear throughout the video is the Ikaryiotiko, the traditional dance of Ikaria. Here it is being played on violin by Yianni (John) Rousos. He is accompanied on tambourine and guitar by two other musicians whose name I did not note. This is an edited version of the dance, which I recorded live during the wedding. The original tune (and dance) went for almost 15 minutes. Several other Greek dances are shown during the film. Of course these dances have their own tunes, but for the purposes of this film, I have used the same tune throughout.
