n the evening, men with musical instruments such as Lyra and Laouto, are sitting around a table at the central square called “Plati”. They start playing table songs, whose progression is really slow. The youngest men of the village start dancing around musicians and late at night women join them. When the Tsampouna player arrives, all musicians change seats and move with their chairs on top of the table, where they sit, playing songs improvised on the spot called “Mantinades”.
