Misirlou – USA (Greek and Armenian)

Misirlou is a song (see Misirlou under MUSIC)

Also see Kritiko Syrto, Haniotikos under Living Dances

As stated below, Misirlou the dance came out of an attempt to perform Kritiko Syrto at a time when Greek music was very hard to come by in the USA outside of Greek immigrant communities.

Armenian-Americans also do a Misirlou/Kritiko Syrto, though they dance it to the tune “Eench Eemanaee”

 

In Greece, Misirlou is considered a song suitable for tsifte telli, a solo woman’s dance.
