Well, yes. The problem is in different explanations of your facts Smile Ancient Greeks kept themselves busy inventing terminology while leaving invention of things to other nations (just kidding) ;)

The Greeks Developed the Theory which remains more or less unchanged till today. The little inventions we make stemming from the theories change from one generation to the next. Anyone hava an Ice box or Record player?

    You can see classical Iranian instruments in use in this clip of Kurdish music from Kermanshah (Nazeri) and Sanandaj (collaborating with Kamkars). Santoor is also there.

It's a traditional Anatolian lullaby, performed by somebody of Anatolian origin, and Turkish words are heard.
The instrument, called "santouri" in Greek, is of Persian origin.
An image of Istanbul appears behind the stage often...
 
 
Rgds. 
 
Very nice.  Not easy to do both (play & sing) well at the same time. Clap
 
Something interesting: it's a lullaby but some lyrics are about children being taken away... Cry

It sounds so eastern. The turk/greek team sounded fantastic.
Zagros, if u want to listen to another variation of santoor try kashmiri.
 
This has given me an idea for a new thread.

Topic changed from "Greco-Turkish music" to "Greco-Turkish music & dance".
 
Video (below) of some dances of Cappadocia, Turkey.
First minute is boring, until the girls start the more coordinated/interesting motions.
Costumes are nice.
At 2:55 music & dance tempo increase.
At 3:40 music changes & 2 men start some war dances with daggers.
At 4:45 swords are used.
At 5:50 music changes again & groups of men & women start a religious dance that begins slow & gets faster.

Now that's culture, tradition. I find the posturing through the dagger ritual very similar to caucasian(from caucases) posturing in their dances.

Karagun...thats how Ottomans called the inhabitants of Thessaly...
And as "karakaan" a Greek nomad group.I've read that karakaan means 'those who flee to uncultivated lands',correct?
