Ikaria, Greece


Ikaria is not just an island of exile but also one of hospitality… It's inhabitants are divided to those who live "this way" and the others who live "that way", creating a whole new concept of time passing… It is that part of Greece where festivities vibrate and excite the young and the old as well.
Every summer the locals become one and dance to a primitive Ikarian rhythm. The festival in Akamatra is equally famous to the big one of Langada including wedding feasts with the music of Lefteris Poulis or "Skatzakas", as he is called, and Nikos Fakaros, inviting you to join this special local atmosphere you definitely have never encountered before.
