Culture In Greece & Society

Culture In Greece & Society

Posted by on Nov 23, 2015 in Greek Art, Greek Culture |

It is difficult to name all the aspects of western culture the Greeks have influenced and shaped. Ranging from painting to music, from architecture to politics, the Greek civilization left a profound mark on the western world.

As the birthplace of democracy, ancient Greeks are the ones that introduced the concepts of rule of law, government by the people and equality under law into the foundations of law in the west. Many other fields were also majorly influenced by the Greeks: biology, geometry, history, philosophy, physics, music and literature.

In terms of science, many scientific terms come directly from the Greek language, terms like anthropology (science of man), chromatography (from Chroma – color), dermatology, atom and electron, and many more. In architecture, the classical and neoclassical styles are the direct descendants of Greek architectural achievements. In philosophy, Greeks basically established the whole scientific discipline: who today has not heard of Socrates, Plato and Aristoteles? The Greeks also introduced many breakthroughs in the military: the phalanx formation, phalanx warfare, the Greek fire and so on.

discus manArt is heavily in debt to the achievement of ancient Greece, including painting, sculpture, music and theatre. The most famous sculptor of ancient Greece was Phidias, creator of many famous statues like Zeus of the Olympia, Athena Promachos and the Frieze of the Parthenon. Other famous contemporaries were Praxiteles and Lysistratus. Greek music and musical instruments also played a great part in the development of classical music of Europe. Theatre was maybe the most developed art form in ancient Greece: the foundations laid by Aeschylus and Sophocles are the basis of modern theatre. Comedy and tragedy are, not to be amazed, Greek words as well.

Modern Greece also played a major part in the history of the world. Greek culture and cuisine have spread around the world, together with Greek emigration, seeking refuge and better life all over the world. Today, everybody is fond of Greek feta cheese, good olive oil and a taste of ouzo. Greeks are also very fond of lamb, different kinds of fish, and all kinds of dairy products, from yoghurt to aged cheese. Some Greek terms have come into everyday use, in terms of gastronomy: meze, yoghurt, pita, gyros and several others.

Greek companies that have played a major part in the economic system of Europe are Alpha, Piraeus and Euro bank banks, Titan Cement Company, Coca Cola Hellenic bottling company, OPAP, Hellenic Petroleum. The Greek economic system lies mainly in the financial sector, with several food and beverage production, shipbuilding, cement industry and a roofing company with great reputation.

Greek culture today is spread all around the world, woven into the foundations of modern day science and art. Greek language is also spoken all over the world, wherever there is a significant Greek minority and many words in everyday use today come from Greek, just like Latin, as the other major sculptor of modern European languages. Greek culture today is recognized as a major influence on many other cultures of Europe and of the world.

The roots of Greek music go as deep as Greek civilization does. It draws its origins from the ancient times of the Greek polis, the time of the birth of the western civilization, philosophy, art and democracy. Ancient Greeks respected and revered music and taught their children the art of music since an early age of six. The music of that time became the foundation of western religious and classical music and the prevailing instruments were lyre and kithara.

91xkiv4qrel-_aa1500_Greek music continued to develop and draw influences from neighboring countries, having first made a very strong impression on the music of Roman Empire. Byzantines also made a major influence on Greek music in the times after the fall of the Western Empire. The music continued to evolve during the Ottoman era, and by the time of the early 20th century, music-cafes or amanedhes, were very popular in the Greek world, mostly with female singers accompanied by a violin. At this time, the Rebetiko movement was also born.

Greek folk music or dhimotika, is comprised of Acritic songs and Klephtic songs, which have different origins. Acritic music has its roots in the music of the 9th century Byzantine Empire, in the „acritic“songs derived from the epic tales of conflicts of Byzantines and Arabs. Klephtic songs come from the time before the Greek revolution, from the tales of warriors that fought the Ottoman invaders.

In the sphere of classical music, two major schools are known: Ioanianschool, developed mostly under Venetian influence, and Greek national school, with ManolisKalomiris as the founder, which sought to introduce German romanticism into Greek national music traditions.

Greek popular music started to develop in the second half of the 19th century, mostly influenced by Italian serenades, with the most successful being Athenian serenades. Many notable composers and artists arose at this time and this form of music, both in popular venues as well as operas and operettas, was the main and most developed form of people’s music of the day. Wealthy people of Greece from all spheres of business like ship building, banking, trade and even a roofing company with a great reputation financed the early careers of promising young artists of the time.

After the 1930’s, Greek musicians were exposed to different styles of music from all over the world like tango, swing, samba, foxtrot etc. Rebetiko was a special style of music which arose in the 1920’s and soon spread all over Greece. Rebetiko singers usually came from the bottom of the society and sang of drug abuse, prison and violence and were scorned by the society. Nevertheless, Rebetiko rose to great popularity, even with being banned for certain periods of time. Later, Rebetikopaved the way for modern forms of Greek popular music which arose after the World War 2, like Entekhno and Laiko. Laiko, as the contemporary form of popular music, has its less-valued subgenres like laiko-pop and skyladiko, which are often criticized for its lesser artistic value and low quality lyrics and music.
