Kasos Festivals and Costums

In Kasos a feast can begin just like that. While eating in a seaside tavern, a genuine, traditional, lively feast can begin out of the blue, with lyres, laoutos, impromptu mantinades, traditional tunes and dances like sousta, zervo that pop up just like that, without any planning. Jokes and treats come and go until the break of dawn, and here, along with “stin ygeia mas” – cheers-, you will also listen the famous Kasian saying “na s’evro”.
