Journalist Yannis-Orestis Papadimitriou is to have a virtual sitdown with Grammy-winning producer, author and collector Christopher King to talk about his work studying, documenting and enjoying the folk music of Epirus. It is a passion first awakened in a record store in Istanbul and captured in his book “A Lament from Epirus,” a travelogue that also serves as a concise history of the area, a respectful anthropological study of its people, as well as a treatise on the importance of what he calls “living music.” The podcast is hosted by the Onassis Cultural Center and is the first part of its Archipelago series.
