Hi all, Im new to this forum and Im not sure how much you will be able to help me but its worth a shot.
I visited Kassiopi in June 2016 and fell in love with the place, we found ourselves walking past Kostas bar every night unable to go in as it was so busy but every night about the same time one certain song caught my ear. When we eventually managed to grab a seat one night I found it is the first song Kostas puts on when the boys are ready to come and dance. He blows his whistle and bangs steel plates together in time with the music. Does anybody have any idea of what this song could be called. I have searched the internet constantly listening to Greek music in the hope I would find it again. I fell in love with the song and still nearly a year on I find myself humming it but I cant for the life of me remember any words. So any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
I hope to visit again one day soon. As much as I love Kassiopi,  Kostas bar made my holiday.

Thanks
Pepper

I don't know the place, but if the track turns out to be Disco Bouzouki, then you should seek help immediately!!! LOL

There are several Youtube videos of Kostas Bar.
Have a look and if you recognise the song, perhaps others will be able to identify it for you.

Thank you, I have watched nearly every you tube video of Kostas bar but they are all when they have already started dancing. The song I am after is played about 5 minutes before the boys come out. Every time I went in Adnois was still getting ready when this song came on.

Nothing wrong with Disco Bouzouki Joefish having spent many happy nights in Kosta's Evil Smile

You have to spend an evening at a really Greek restaurant and listen to the real Bouzaki players. It is magical.

Where would you recommend Elliemay. Preferably for early/late season.
There is one bouzaki player that I have seen at individual events who is fabulous. Never seen him at the usual Greek nights though.
Beside the sea all worries wash away!!

It's when you're in a café and it comes round for the third time on the CD and you still haven't been served that it starts to grate... Angry


A few years ago Aris had a couple of guys playing Bouzouki in the Belvedere in Paleokastritsa - they were excellent.

Maistro on the sea front in Acharavi have bouzouki players some nights, as do Alegria and Ta Rebetika also in Acharavi. Also The Family restaurant in Sidari.
Basically you need to check out local postings or The Corfu Grapevine on facebook where they tend to be advertised.
