A presentation showing the procedure for the distillation of pomace to yield the alcoholic beverage Souma (Tsipouro). Souma has at least 38-40 percent of alcohol! Photos were taken in a pot still with a nice copper cauldron, located near the village of Stavrinides high above the north coast of the island of Samos in Greece. The music in this presentation is performed by local musicians, recorded 2008 "live" on a wednesday in September in a special place called "Notos" in Pythagorio on Samos. Musicians are: Jiannis Loulourgas (bouzouki, main vocals), Jiannis Karavasilis (guitar, vocals) Makis Karavasilis (bouzouki, vocals)
One of these rare occasions, when magic is in the air. Late at night we came to a place called "Karafaki" in the port of Pythagorio on the island of Samos, where I met my friend Jiannis Loulourgas, luthier and singer/bouzouki player. We convinced him to play some songs for us despite the fact that he already had played all evening in a restaurant. So he opened his bouzouki case again, took out his bouzouki and sang and played a couple of songs for us. I was glad to have my "audio field recorder" with me. Here is one of the songs he sang in that night: "S'agapo yiati eisai oraia". A beautiful traditional song originating from Asia Minor. Listen and sit with us - at least acoustically - at our table in that night of September 27th, 2008l In the background you can even hear the music of a tavern nearby. The photos of Jiannis depicted in this presentation were taken in the summer of 2008 at a different site in Pythagorio called "Notos".
