Naousa - Orkestar Dželal Aguševi (from Agušev) — 16 March 2013 by peterjaques published on 2013/04/26 15:24:26 +0000 Recorded March 16, 2013 in Naousa, Makedonia, Greece. Apokrias is the Greek Carnaval, a street celebration before the beginning of Lent. This is the Dželal Aguševi band from Agušev, Macedonia (FYROM). Many bands from the country to the north — especially Roma brass bands — come to play for apokrias, as it has traditionally been a time people have tipped well. During the current economic crisis, not so much, but some intrepid bands still make the trip.
