Headrick also shared the "Yia Mas ~ Nisiotika playlist, an easy way to channel that Greek summer feeling (if you've felt it, you know what we're talking about). We've chosen songs from all over the islands. I hope these bring you as much cheer as they bring to me. Island music tends to be lighter – one can almost feel the breeze and rollicking waves of the sea. Click here to listen and make sure to "Follow" the playlist on Spotify!"
