The song is titled “Surmeli Vai” and the dancers dance while playing the little raki/ouzo shot glasses, instead of cymbals. The dance is named as antikrystos, i.e. karsilama, but it is 4/4 and not 9/7. Antikrystos is the dance who is dance “opposite to”, i.e. in pairs. The dancing very similar to the tsifteteli of Izmir and to the Ikonio/Konya dances.

The video has no credit about the dance troupe of the excellent band and singer, but only about the researcher Yorgos Melikis.
