Kostas is a member of 'Global Messengers', the group launched by Grammy Award-winning pianist and UNESCO Artist for Peace, Danilo Perez. Vasilis has appeared at Carnegie Hall, the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Panama Jazz Festival and WOMEX. He has shared the stage with renowned artists such Simon Shaheen, Tigran Hamasyan, Antonio Serrano and Christos Zotos, to name a few.
His innovative approach on the laouto is based on adapting Petroloukas Halkias’s clarinet lines and instrumental philosophy, as well as finding ways to combine jazz improvisation tools with the traditional elements of his musical roots.
This concert is made possible by the Danielle Rose Paikin Foundation.
