Greek Music in America

Anthony Shay

University Press of Mississippi

In “Encountering Greek American Soundscapes,” respected dance scholar and choreographer Anthony Shay investigates the context of Greek musical performances based on his experiences as a young folk dancer in California from the 1950s to 1970s. After first tracing immigration history and exploring the circumstances in which people listened to music, sang, played musical instruments, and danced in Greece, he then delineates the types of music in several different American contexts, as well as who plays or sings each genre and, who forms the audience. Among the contexts that he notes are church picnics, as well as Greek taverns and clubs such as Athenian Gardens and Greek Village.
