Σωκράτης Σινόπουλος - Γιώργος Μανωλάκης Duo

Δύο ξεχωριστοί και πολύ επιδραστικοί μουσικοί συμπράτουν σε ένα πολύ ιδιαίτερο ντουέτο.
Με αφετηρία την κρητική μουσική, τις ελληνικές παραδόσεις και τις παραδόσεις της μεσογείου.
Oι δύο μουσικοί παίρνουν τη σκυτάλη απ' τους παλιούς λαϊκούς μαστόρους μουσικούς
και παρουσιάζουν ένα διαλογικό πρόγραμμα που περιστρέφεται με διαδραστικούς αυτοσχεδιασμούς γύρω από τον άξονα του παλιού ρεπερτορίου.

Sokratis Sinopoulos bio:

Greek musician Sokratis Sinopoulos is a contemporary master of the lyra, a bowed instrument that dates back to the Byzantine era. His playing is delicate and nuanced yet highly expressive, and his proficiency on the instrument has been widely acclaimed. Sinopoulos has collaborated with numerous musicians throughout the world. He’s equally comfortable crossing genre boundaries into jazz and classical, as he is to staying true to folk traditions of Greece and Eastern Mediterranean.

Giorgos Manolakis bio:

Giorgos Manolakis was born in Heraklion, Crete in 1982. When he was eight years old he began learning the cretan laouto, taught by his father, Kostas Manolakis, who was one of the major laouto players of his generation. After six years he began studying the bouzouki beside several remarkable teachers. Today Giorgos Manolakis is considered one of the greatest virtuosos of his generation on the laouto and bouzouki. He has worked with many notable musicians and composers: Ross Daly, Hainides, Naseer Shamma, Psarantonis, Sokratis Malamas, Zohar Fresco and others.
