The Music of Contemporary Greece

Sept. 12, 2008

Though Socrates and Plato died 2,500 years ago there is, of course still a country called Greece. And many modern Greek musicians will tell you that their art is influenced by the ideas of the ancients. Join us as we explore whether or not this is true.

The podcast is narrated by John Franklin, professor in the Department of Classics at the University of Vermont. neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
