Culture Shock – Greece

Written by on 28 octobre 2019

Culture Shock is a new series that we have launched on Euradio. Each week we take one European country and put it under the spotlight, looking at its musical and cultural outputs. Each day there are two instalments of the show; one looking at music, and the other at culture. For our second week of Culture Shock, we chose Greece, a country whose food is as rich as its landscapes are beautiful!
