Pandelis Karalis, as a small child in Hosepsi, Arta, constructs violins from canes and tries to play music. This is the sound he later places within the stone walls of his coffee shop, a 1928 building he inherited from his father. He accompanies the first pieces of his folklore collection, in a space where the myth and the raki coexist. Primary school graduate of a grade 6, he collects for half a century the last memories of his birth-place’s wooden culture. Simple, carved everyday tools, clothes, songs, wefts, wood carvings, guns are what feeds his obsessions. Collector, “eccentric” according to Melina, Pandelis likes to pour some tsipouro in the evening, embracing with his eyes his approximately 1500 “children” in the now organized folklore museum. When seeing him, one understands that he saved all these items. He knows that he simply saved himself. At the age of 75 he started taking clarinet lessons.
