Τραγούδια του Λαζάρου

I quote an excerpt from the book of Stephen Fasias:

"Η νοικοκυρά του σπιτιού με τη σειρά της περίμενε τα Λαζαρούδια, να μας ακούσει και να μας δώσει αυγά, σταφίδο-στραγάλα και σπάνια χρήματα. Σε κάθε σπίτι ανάλογα με την οικογενειακή και κοινωνική κατάσταση που βρίσκονταν, λέγαμε και το αντίστοιχο τραγούδι." Παραπομπή από βιβλίο: Στέφανος Φασιάς ,Έτος.(2013) "ΑΠΟ ΤΗΝ ΑΠΟΚΡΙΑ ΣΤΟ ΠΑΣΧΑ ΚΑΤΑΓΡΑΦΕΣ ΕΘΙΜΩΝ ΑΠΟ ΤΟ ΧΩΡΙΟ ΚΑΜΠΗ ΑΡΤΑΣ",(κεφ. ΙV, σ. 31) for more information you can read the book on the link below:
