Description:In this video clip, we see Mr Tzanavaris and Mrs Tsipa on the balcony of Mrs Tsipa's house. They are whistling and they are demonstrating old household equipment like hand-driven stone mill for grinding dried maize. Later on, Abbie Hantgan and Sophie Salffner join the (now spoken) conversation and try out the mill.
The Antia Whistling Language is a Greek whistling language used by the people of Antia in southern Euboia, Greece, to communicate with one another in their mountainous village. The language is endangered because very few people still live in the remote village, and the language was not passed on to children outside the village. Members of the community have noticed this decline of language use and are now actively engaging in language maintenance. Together with whistlers of other languages, the Cultural Organisation of all Antia People organises international meetings, for example the First International Meeting for the Study and Preservation of Whistling Languages, Antia/Karystos, 23rd/24th Aug 2014. Whistlers also hold whistling classes in schools in neighbouring towns and islands to pass on the language to children.
