of democracy. In the countries of the eastern Mediterranean, children who misbehave are threatened with a creature known as "babau" (or "baubau", "baobao", "bavbav" or similar). In Italy and Romania, the Babau (in Romania, Bau-bau) is also called the ''l'uomo nero'' (Romanian: ''omul negru'') or "black man". In Italy, he is portrayed as a tall man wearing a heavy black coat, with a black hood or hat which hides his face. Sometimes, parents will knock loudly under the table, pretending that someone is knocking at the door, and saying: "Here comes ''l'uomo nero''! He must know that there's a child here who doesn't want to drink his soup!" ''L'uomo nero'' is not supposed to eat or harm children, just take them away to a mysterious and frightening place. A popular lullaby says that he would keep a child with him "for a whole year". Filastrocche.it In Slovenia, the "Bavbav" is described as a formless spirit. In Greece and Cyprus the equivalent of the Bogeyman is known as ''Baboulas'' (Greek (Greek language): ''Μπαμπούλας''). Typically, he is said to be hiding under the bed, although the details of his story is adapted by the parents in a variety of ways. In Egypt "al-Bu'bu'" (البعبع) is often depicted as a night creature that is dressed in black, who haunts children that misbehave. * ''The Oasis'' (1834) * ''Philothea'', a romance of Greece in the days of Pericles (1836) * ''The Family Nurse'' (1837) Folk music on Cyprus is similar to the folk music of Greece and includes dances like the tatsia, sousta, syrtos, zeibekiko and the karsilama suites. Note that unlike Greece and Turkey, there are suites of four karsilama dances, different for men and women, some of them other than the standard 9 8 tempo. Traditional music is modal, based on the maqam (Arabian maqam)s. Both Greek and Turkish Cypriots use the violin as the main solo instrument, accompanied by the lute for Greek Cypriots and the ud for Turkish Cypriots. Accordion, percussion (percussion instrument) and penny whistle (''pithiavli'') are also used. Notable performers of Greek Cypriot folk music include singers Michael Tterlikkas, Christo Sikkis and Michalis Hatzimichail. A niche artist of traditional music is Gianni Delfinogamis, a champion of many ''tshiatísta'' (Cypriot Greek: τσιατίστα, "spite song ") competitions. The ''tsiatísta'' is improvised antiphonal singing akin to the Cretan mantinada, with satirical and comedic intent, usually performed between friends or relatives poking fun at each other. Another famous singer and composer, in Cyprus and Greece, of traditional Cypriot and popular music is Mihalis Violaris. Greek-Cypriot folk music is most closely related to the Nisiotika (the folk music of the Aegean Islands) and especially so to the music of the Dodecanese.

highly modern

highly modern language with an underlying streak of farce. Childhood Although his exact height has not been given, the Greek (Greece) assassin (assassination) Constantine Drakon is a short individual. As a child he was teased for this by other children. Once he started killing people at the age of ten, however, he found he was no longer sensitive about his stature. He claims that he had nothing strange or traumatic in his upbringing to turn him to murder, he was simply curious to see what he could do. Discovering that he was a prodigy at killing, Constantine proceeded to make a living out of it. He considers what he does not just a job but a vocation, and takes pride in the businesslike manner in which he operates. *AG EMS (Wadden Sea, both between the Netherlands and (in) Germany) *Agoudimos Lines (Italy to Greece & Albania) *Ålandstrafiken (mainland Finland to Åland Islands) '''Bogdanci''' ( Commons:Category:Greece Wikipedia:Greece Dmoz:Regional Europe Greece
