Epirus

Peloponnesos
Epirus

Epirus became a formal part of Greece in 1913. It is located in the northwest corner of Greece, and its topography consists of mountainous terrain, necessitating heavy garments and shoes. Dances from Epirus are slow and heavy, but are danced with much pride and dignity. Epirus' music is characterized by the clarinet, laouto, and daouli. It should be noted that the female costume pictured is from Karagouni, Thessaly, and the male costume is from Epirus.
