Safe Mode: On
Oldest Song In History.

Klezmer Schlezmer is the performer, and the below description is in his own words:

"The Song of Seikilos", the first COMPLETE piece of written music...IN THE ENTIRE WORLD! This melody is an amazing musical legacy from ancient Greece; a precious remnant of a long-forgotten musical culture now forever lost in the mists of time...

Although older music has been found, all that remains are either just pitiful fragments of the melodies, or the way the melodies have been notated in ancient times have O many modern interpretations (e.g., the 3400 year old Hurrian Hymn from Syria), that the actual melody is still mostly academic guess work. "The Song of Seikilos" is unique, as not only do we have the complete notation of the melody, but the notation is totally unambiguous - the melody played here, is the SAME as that which was first was written by the ancient Greek song writer, around 2000
