Interview with bouzouki player Spiros Skordiles

Interview with bouzouki player Spiros Skordiles

Date
1989-06-25
Description
Three audio cassettes. Much of the interview at the start is in Greek. Sokrilis discusses the bouzouki, learning to play, emigration to the US from Greece, family life, teaching the instruments to others, and festivals. Recorded at the Sponge Industry Folk Arts festival, festival sounds can be heard throughout. The festival was held June 24-25, 1989 to celebrate Tarpon Springs heritage of sponge diving, a practice that dated back to the 1890s. By 1905, when 500 Greek immigrants answered an ad to be sponge divers, the town acquired a distinctive Greek flavor, as the Greek Americans thrived in the sponge industry. At one point, Florida provided 95% of the nation's sponges. Although today over fishing and synthetic materials have undercut the sponge diving industry, the tradition lives on in Greek families, and through tourism.
