Alternative Title:

Tsiattista poetic duelling

Description:

Ο Ιωσήφ Μιχαήλ (Γιούσελλος) εξ Αγίας Μαρίνας Σκυλλούρας τσιαττίζει σε γιορτή στη Κερύνεια.
Josef Micahel (Yiousellos), originally from Agia Marina Skylloura, duels with a tsiattisto at a festival in Kyrenia. The lively, impromptu oral poetry known as Tsiattista is often performed to the accompaniment of violin or lute in ‘jousts’ in which one poet-singer attempts to outdo another with clever verses made up of rhyming couplets.
