Haiclice Tsangaris and Xeni Sarris will sing a Greek folksong that they usually sing after a wedding. This song describes the bride as a queen. She wears the crown, and has something on her lips. She is like an icon, and all the people--old and young--have heard of her. Greeks, along with Italians and Minorcans, first came to Florida in 1768, led by Dr. Andrew Turnbull. Turnbull settled New Smyrna Beach, Florida. When the colony came to an end in 1777, the settlers relocated to St. Augustine. The sound quality of this recording is extremely poor. It has been included online because the melody line can still be identified.
