Christmas Carols from Different Parts of Greece

The beauty of Greek tradition is that such a small country is divided in numerous little "pockets" of varied cultural shades of sound and scent. Greek Christmas Carols couldn't be far behind; each region has its own, each with its own characteristic dialect and music tonalities, all shedding Hellenic light.
Here is a small selection of favourites, each very different from the other.

Christmas Carols from Kefalonia in Western Greece

Christmas Carols from Crete island in Southern Greece

Christmas Carols from Corfu in Western Greece

Christmas Carols from Thrace in Northern Greece

Christmas Carols from Cappadokia (Grecobyzantine region, now part of moden Turkey) and of Mytilene island in Eastern Greece
