Note: The informant prefaced this carnival   (apokriátiko) tune (called “ o grigoros” = in a quick  tempo)  with the following  comments. “When  the carnival season begins, it is  customary for everyone  to celebrate. Skyrians  gather together  to eat, drink and have a good time. However,  a celebration  without (performing) this traditional Skyrian carnival tune  would be considered impossible”.
