London Greek Music, organisers and promoters of the best live Greek Artists and music in London, directly from Greece's elite group of musicians!

It is an honour and a pleasure to host the mesmeric master of the 6 string guitar 'Manolis Androulidakis' and his recital "Greek music in six strings"in his debut in London on Sunday 22 March at The Cypriot Community Centre in North London
This exclusive event will be a sell-out and one not to be missed!

Manolis Androulidakis

One of the most prominent virtuosos in classical guitar, the composer Manolis presents a special project with works by Greek composers.

 

Manolis Androulidakis is among the greatest Greek musicians - hence was chosen to record a CD for the series “Famous Greek Soloists” (FM Records 2016.) He is renowned for the use of particular guitar techniques, such as tremolo-apoyando and pulgar tremolo. With sophisticated taste, he comprehends as a performer how to permeate into the essence of the compositions, displaying his exemplary skills with rare coherence and a perfect executive style.

 

With his personal album 'Myrtia' (2016) -which is the official international release with works of Mikis Theodorakis adapted for solo guitar- as a starting point, he presents a heretic repertoire, with moments of extraordinary mastery.

 

Manolis presents an “other" guitar that aims to trick the ear of the listener, creating the illusion that he is listening to two guitars, a bouzouki or even a string ensemble.

 

Starting from the ancient Greek melody “Epitaph” of Seikilos', he moves from Hadjidakis to Theodorakis and from Zorbas’ dance to the Greek cinema themes - with worldwide tunes of Greek composers (Vangelis Papathanassiou, Yiannis Markopoulos and Toni Maroudas).

 

The pure brilliance of Manolis effortlessly transitions between the history of Greek anthems until he reaches the incomparable solos of Manolis Chiotis, the musicals of Mimis Plessas and the tender melodies of Stavros Xarhakos and Dionisis Savvopoulos.
