Kantades (Serenades) are the characteristic songs of the Ionian island region, which have been influenced by Italian music and are sung by men with deep voices using Greek lyrics. Its name comes from the word “cadare” which means “sing” in Italian. In the oldest usage, which survives in informal form to the present day, a serenade is a musical greeting performed for a lover, friend, person of rank or other person to be honored, typically performed outdoors and in the evening. The classic serenade usage would be from a lover to his lady love through a window.
Organised by the Ionian Society to raise funds for the children in need in Greece.
