    In Greece there are about 3 Lyras. Constantinoupoli/Thracian Lyra, Pontian Lyra and Cretan Lyra. Isn't there a Calabrian Lyra?

    It went from that frightening exorcism to this...


    This is what I see them doing in the piazzas in the summer during the festival. Once the beat gets into your bloodstream you can't stop.

    Yes, there are still people who play a lira in Calabria.

    Siderno, near some of my husband's people.


    You can see they still use the piffero too, as we do in the north. Not my favorite instrument.

    yup
    As I expected

    with lyra these dances are closer to my ear sounds, and seem more natural to me,
    with hamonicas etc seem more W European

    Algela I used your link
    I think the 1rst version can easily pass as modern Helladic song

    ΟΘΕΝ ΑΙΔΩΣ OY EINAI
    ΑΤΗ ΛΑΜΒΑΝΕΙΝ ΑΥΤΟΙΣ
    ΥΒΡΙΣ ΓΕΝΝΑΤΑΙ
    ΝΕΜΕΣΙΣ ΚΑΙ ΤΙΣΗ ΑΚΟΛΟΥΘΟΥΣΙ ΔΕ

    When there is no shame
    Divine blindness conquers them
    Hybris (abuse, opprombium) is born
    Nemesis and punishment follows.

    I'm a native Greek speaker. Watching the videos, I understand 50% of the words. Reading the transcript I understand everything. The music is also incredibly similar to traditional Greek music. I really hope I'll be able to visit these places one day.

Aside from the incorporation of most Muslim converts in the (usually of mixed populations, other than the northern Albania) areas where Albanians lived into the Albanian ethnic group (in the albanian dominated pashaliks, Yanena and scutari,and rumeli eyalet in general) the child harvest , known as paidomazoma/yenitsaroi with Greeks and Janissaries in english, abducted and converted to Islam hundreds of thousands of children over the 300 years of the institution. In the Areas that Albanians ruled, those Janissaries corps were incorporated into the Albanian nation (due to the Muslim faith). Thus the peculiarities of Albanian Islam which was traditionally heavily influenced from the Bektashi order(yenissaries were all followers of that sect) due to the enormous impact of those corps to the Albanian society and ethnic group.
    Now, you're doing it. You've earned yourself an infraction. This is not going to turn into another flame war between Greeks and Albanians.

    As for the Griko language, it is protected by the Italian government, so any suggestion that it is considered a "threat" is absurd. Get your facts straight. So, by the way, is the Albanian language. That short distance across the Adriatic makes a huge difference.

    Any more of this and I'll just start deleting posts.

    Italian people and government has proven themselves very fair when it comes to conservation and respect of minority rights/languages, if the balkans was like that there would be 90% less fighting

    Thanks Kostop,
    If you noticed any word or particular accents that relate or remind you of place in Greece you’re welcome to opine. :)

    I recall seeing one in Calabria, very similar to the one we have in Crete. It didn't surprise me, since this type of Lyra originates from Byzantine Greeks, which controlled most of southern Italy and Sicily even up until the 11th century AD if i recall correctly.

    I am trying to trace my wife's grandmother's origins. She came from Calabria but I have no idea from which city or town. Yes I checked the Ellis Island records and the only thing I got from them is they misspelled her last name Celano from Celana and the last place of residence or birth is Cazanova. Now there was/is a neighborhood in Napoli named Casanova around via Casanova. I don't think there is a place in Calabria named Casanova but I could be wrong. Is there a centralized resource for genealogical research in Italy?

    No, there isn't, unfortunately.

    I sometimes use the Catholic directory of parishes, because people might list that as place of origin instead of the comune, but even there, there is no Casanova or Casanova in Calabria.
    http://www.thecatholicdirectory.com/...try&country=it

    I highly doubt a Calabrian would say they were Neapolitan or vice versa, however. They were virtual "foreigners" to each other until they met here.

    There is a Casabona in Calabria, however, and the people at Ellis Island are notorious for bungling the records. I know of a Chini who became Kinney. They spent the rest of the their lives down three generations explaining they weren't Irish. :)

    http://www.thecatholicdirectory.com/...ecity=Casabona

    It's in the provincia of Cortone.

    According to this site, there's a lot of "Celanos" in Calabria.
    http://www.gens.info/italia/it/turis...0#.XOA9Q8hKhPY

    There's only one Celana, and it is in Campania, but when there's only one variant like that I find it's almost always that this family is mis-spelling it.

    If it were me I would write to both parishes in Casabona Calabria to inquire.

    https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en...rical_Records)

    http://geocities.ws/paulanigro/itali...m-letters.html

    You could also try to hunt out the parish church in the Cazanova neighborhood in Napoli, just in case.

    She boarded the boat to the US out of Napoli and I am thinking she might have stayed in the Casanova neighborhood while waiting for her boat. She lied about her age to get on the boat (she was 15 and declared herself to be 19).

    The accents in the videos reminded me more of Peloponisos, and Cyprus. But they would not sound "alien" anywhere in Greece, especially in rural areas where "pitch accent" still survives.

    Hehe, figured it out. Actually went to the ship's passenger manifest and after a few false starts deciphered the handwriting. She came from Terranova da Sibari, Cosenza, Calabria.There are a few Celanos in the area still. :).

    Guess which town is to the west of it. Yes, yes Spezzano Albanese! One of the people from there is right above her in the passenger manifest.

    That’s great, thanks.
    I’m not “technically” Griko-Salentino, but I am Salentino (I think, LOL), so I share these results with you:

    Wow, this is very interesting, thanks for sharing. Which tool/calculator did you use to get this breakdown if I may ask? I'm embarrassed to admit that I only have my FTDNA results which unfortunately do not provide such level of detail.
    The link to the Aegean islands in your results is particularly interesting, as some of these areas are known to have colonized the southern part of the Italian peninsula in antiquity. However, it's worth noting that this also worked the other way around, especially in places like Kalymnos, Kythera and Peloponisos for example, as these areas received migrants from Italy during Roman and medieval times, also when they were ruled by Venice.

    It’s a K36 oracle spreadsheet.
    It was part of an nMonte package download.
    The original link doesn't work anymore.

    While we are waiting on some new data, here are the PCAs from the paper that compared Griko speakers from Puglia and Sicily with Italians, Albanians and Greeks of different regions.

    The Calabrian Grecanico speakers seem to have interbred so much they've wandered off on their own. If you could see the mountain tops in which they live you'd know why. :)
