(p.87) Amanes: The Legacy of the Oriental Mother1
Greek Music in America

Gail Holst-Warhaft

University Press of Mississippi

The amanes became emblematic of a style of music that was both admired for its emotional intensity and rejected for its association with the oriental and feminine side of the modern Greek psyche Gail Holst-Warhaft tackles a genre that has rarely been discussed in English language essays. She deftly delineates the earliest known appearances of the emotionally intense amanes and its ties to other Greek musical traditions. She also examines the performance of the Asia Minor style in the U.S., including associated vocalists, musicians, recordings, and recording companies.
