 modes commonly used in Greek or Balkan folk music
Author: acermak

My instructor and I have finished the 2nd Rubank book of duets and decided to tackle Matejkos "Balkan Duets" in order to build up some abilities on odd meters. The first piece we played was called Kalimera and it was a 7/8 Kalmatianos rhythm. It seemed to be using an unfamiliar mode with an augmented 2nd in it.

Does anyone here know what music in that style would likely use as modes? Or a reference site or book I could take a gander at to try to figure this out. I'm familiar with Ionian, Aeolian, Phrygian...

Anyway, it's neat music and fun to play. It's really nice to do something completely different. Next up is a Kopanika (11/8) piece.
