Big Fat Green Rhymes: Unfolding the Environmental Clue of Cretan Songs

Maria Hnaraki

Apstrakt: One type of Cretan songs, the rizitika, created by the inhabitants of Western Crete, suggests to Greeks, through lyrics that describe various Cretan landscapes, they have to protect their land and be strong because their ancestors fought for it. This paper shows how Cretan songs mediate traditions, reinforce cultural stereotypes and reconnect Cretans with their roots as Cretan souls, through music performance, identify with the soil of Crete.
