Dancin' in the street

The village doesn't have a plateia so when a summer musical event happens, the band have to set up on the jetty, flanked by a couple of tavernas on one side and an ouzeri on the other. They face the road, which is still open for cars and for people walking up and down, whilst on the other side there are a few rows of chairs for the audience. The village is packed and the atmosphere is noisy, chaotic and fun.

Last night the band played for nearly five hours non-stop until late. The star turn was the skinny pappous, dancing with an Andy Capp style flat cap and a fag hanging out of his mouth.

This rough video gives a feel of the night.
