Folk Culture

As small boxes, the islands of the archipelago preserve to this day the treasures of popular culture: music, traditional instruments and dances, weddings, Easter, Christmas and carnival customs, the arts and the innumerable festivals organized throughout the year.

The Aegean Sea is the dominant element that unites and divides the inhabitants of the islands. The customs and traditions of each place marked its diversity, while at the same time becoming an occasion for the islanders to come closer and share experiences.
