Evetiria is a festival which revives every Clean Monday (Ash Monday) in the village of Nedousa (20 km from the city of Kalamata, Peloponnese Greece) in Mount Taygetos.
Coming from the depths of time it 'helps' the land to produce an abundance of fruit so that the village will have a prosperous year.

Disguised carnivalists with pastoral bells hanging on them, go from house to house, taking everything that the villagers offer. At noon the representation of human life begins sowing and the song of the earth, building, marriage, death, and resurrection. In practice, all, performers and viewers, are involved and circulate with smudged faces to exterminate evil.
