The land of Ionia (with its center, Smyrna) and Constantinople (at the coasts of Propontis), as well, have functioned as a «matrix of culture and music» implanting songs, tunes, dances and instruments, to the local traditions in the islands of the Aegean Sea.

Nikos Economides, a leading folk violin virtuoso, after having made a thorough research, commits himself  to guide us to the « Asia Minor folkore in the Aegean Sea», focusing on the musical and dancing traditions of Kythnos, Paros and Naxos. At the same time, George Venetoulias (philologist-folklorist) and Nikos Karambourniotis (President of the Asia Minor and Constantinople Association «Rizes») refer to the Asian Minor heritage and its preservation, on the islands and in Athens, too, where the refuges settled in .

Nikos Economides (violin-song) is accompanied by the musicians: Kyriaki Spanou (song), Panagiotis Vergos (zither), George Gavras (lute), Nikos Tsantanis (bagpipe) and Dionysia Pappoulis (toumbi). The members of the «Hellenic Folklore Company of Expression and Culture-ELETEP» are dancing (curated by Giorgos Liaros) and dancers-entertainers from Kythnos, Amorgos, Sifnos, Paros, Schinoussa and Mikrasians from Melis Megaron are participating, too.
