 Re: modes commonly used in Greek or Balkan folk music

That particular piece, "Kalimera", is in the Ousak mode (from what I see, "Kalimera" has a flatted second, not augmented). For this sort of Greek music, forget about the mode names used in jazz, for example (Ionian, Dorian etc); Greek musicians have a lot of "modes" (sometimes called "dromoi" in discussions to avoid using "scale" and "mode") and here's one list:

Armoniko Minore
Diatoniko Minore
Hitzaz
Hitzazkiar
Houzam
Kartziyar
Kiourdi
Matzore
Melodiko Minore (Asc/desc)
Niavent
Ousak
Peiraiotikos
Poimeniko Minore
Rast (Asc/desc)
Sambah
Segiah
Tambahaniotikos

With some google searching you'll find useful pages with lots more info on this topic. Here's just one link:
