Dance Rhythms

My boyfriend Spiros pointed out to me the other day that many of the songs I like are kamelieriko zeibekiko. We both laughed, but as I began to listen to my tapes and mp3s, I realised he was right. I also realised I love palio zeibekiko and have to see how many of those I have and compare the rhythm with the newer style for the sound, but that's another story. lol So now I'm wondering. What's your favourite Greek dance rhythm? As an aside, he played pontiakos for me and that's got to be one of the most difficult rhythms I've ever heard. He was a professsional drummer and was also a musician in the Hellenic Air Force, so that probably helped, but I'm pretty good at that kind of thing myself and was lost.
