In “’Health to you, Marko, with your Bouzouki!’: The Role of Spoken Interjection in Greek Musicians’ Imagined Performance World in Historic Recordings,” Michael Kaloyanides categorizes and analyses the role of tsakismata, the common verbal interjections in Greek music performances, in both live and recorded performances. Not only is the world of the recording studio a topic that has been rarely explored, the verbal interjections are a practice that is ubiquitous but again rarely illuminated. As a music scholar who was raised and performed within Greek diaspora communities, Kaloyanides is unusually well-equipped to interpret the differences in usage between interjections in live community events as opposed to the recording studio conventions.
