“Tzivaeri” The song is talking about migration and expresses the mother’s distress for her children who has migrated. The meaning of the word “Tzivaeri” is jewel, gold and provides us with an idea of the love a mother has to her children. The mother’s sorrow is endless because she advised her son to migrate due to difficulties but she misses he very much.
Greek Transparent Boundaries project - HRDC have been working with Elderly Open Care Centre of Palaio Faliro, documenting traditional songs that the elders have brought with them from their home villages and towns and using these songs to form networks which have now become small choirs. Three of these choirs, all members over 80, each performed for us.
