THE GROUP OF VRAKOFORS OF CRETE A musical journey starting from the primitive, Byzantine music of Crete and its recording today will take place on October 13 at the Herodeion.

In addition, it was an important center of Christianity and the cultivation of Byzantine chanting, which fueled traditional music, especially radical song.
