The life of Greek people has always been connected with music; for love, nuptials, festivities, feasts, as well as music that makes the earth fertile, that leads to tears and cures the soul. At AFK we are proud of our heritage and work to preserve it by keeping the customs of the island alive. Below are Kastellorizian nuptial songs which are sung at the Savatovratho.
Below are a list of lyrics from traditional Kastellorizian wedding songs:
- Aghios Nikola Ton Myron
- Apo Ta Votania (See video below)
- Ela Efhi
- Ela Manama
- Kerna Mas (video)
- Mana Hara (video)
- Nifi ko Trayouthi, Emis then irtha me etho na fame ken a piou me
- Oraia Ine Nifi Mas
- Simera Gamos Yinete
- Sto Spiti tis Nifis
