Thrace

Western Thrace was reunited with Greece in 1923. Eastern Thrace is located both in Turkey and Bulgaria. Thracian dances tend to be lively and generally allow for less improvisation by the leader. They are also known for their numerous variations in hand holds. Thracian music is characterized by the gaida, lyra, klarino, and defi.
