Pontiaka Music Playlist

Pontian music, also known as Pontiaka, was created by the Greeks of the Pontus region.  The music is played by a Kementze (Lyra),   Daouli (drum) and often a flute or fife and sung in the Pontian dialect.  This dialect is deeply rooted in the Ancient Greek language and remains a dialect still used today.

Pontiaka music is a form of story telling. Through traditional music, the Pontian culture and history was preserved for future generations.  Dance also plays a big part in the Pontian culture.  Popular dances such as the Kotsari, Tik and Serra are still danced at gatherings and festivals today.
