Psarantonis in concert: it promises to be an unforgettable experience
Psarantonis first put bow to lyre - the “mistress” of all instruments - at the age of nine as he tended his flocks high up on Mount Psiloreitis. A formidable, self-taught instrumentalist and a born musician, he has brought his unique style to every corner of the earth, winning admirers and audiences wherever he has gone. His untamed bowing is a force of nature and makes him one of the most authentic exponents of an art inspired by the sounds and whispers of Crete and its ancient musical tradition - with a dash of blues on the side.
Psarantonis is accompanied by: Niki Xylouri, bendir and sings – Yannis Paximadakis, lute – Lambis Xylouris, outi
