Domna’s Asia Minor A tribute to the 10th anniversary of the death of Domna Samiou



“Domna Samiou, ‘Domna’ for the Greeks all over the world, our own Domna, the child of the martyred refugee wave of 1922, was born in the hopeful poverty of a shack in the Athens neighbourhood of Kaisariani. As a young girl, she secretly read the Psalter and clandestinely entered into the taverns of her neighbourhood; as a teenager, she blossomed with a persistent longing at the side of Simon Karas; as a mature woman, she tirelessly toured the Greek villages time and again, greedily absorbing the wealth of tradition from the most authentic mouths, the most authentic instrument players. Ten years without her, but having always in our hands the treasures that she collected for us!”

Thanos Tsaknakis, member of the Domna Samiou Greek Folk Music Association
