Mavromata (Greek-German)


Mavromata (mahv-roh-MAH-tah), meaning “dark-eyed girl,” was learned by Dick von der Zwan from
Greek-Thracian immigrants living in Germany. It was learned from him in the 1980s by Lee Ottorholt,
who taught it during his February 1999 California Tour and at the 2006 Stockton Folk Dance Camp.
