The Minor of Tekke

In 1933 an album came to Greece that was recorded in America and contained an organic track that was a huge success. This piece was the famous Τε Minor of Tekke¨ by the composer Ioannis Chalkias.

The directors of the Columbia record company in Athens could not understand the reason for this success, as well as the musical instrument that dominated the musical performance of this song.

So after much research they concluded that the difference of this album was in the fact that it had a different musical sound, which came from the musical instrument called bouzouki.
