Kalamata is where Nikolaos Politis (1852-1921) the Father of Greek Folklore was born and brought up. With the showing of the folkloric wealth, the manuscripts, speeches and deeds of the people as well as with the customs, the legends and their traditions, as these were saved and passed on from one generation to the other, he proved the historic continuity of the Greeks on the basis of their heritage.
