Peloponnesos (Morea): Oldest part of modern Greece where, in 1821, the struggle began to create a free state. Though many regional dances have disappeared, the Kalamatianos and Tsamikos, originally associated with the Morea, remain very popular throughout most of Greece. Most interesting folklore areas are Mani, for the mirologia (laments) sung at times of death and Tsakonia for its Tsakonikos dance.
