Fame in the Peloponnese (our new album)

We’re in Kalamata to find out about life in the town, which was hit on 13th September 1986 by an earthquake of nearly 6.6 magnitude. Although 28 people lost their lives, in the long term the town made a hugely successful comeback from tragedy.

Kalamata is the second biggest town in the Peloponnese but apparently it was a bit of a rundown place, badly in need of a makeover and with an economy in the doldrums. We’re here to find how the devastation of the earthquake actually proved an opportunity for the town to reinvent itself. And we’ve made it onto local TV with our expert geologist, fixer, translator and honorary fourth member Dr Ioannis Papanikolaou. Click below to see us in action.
