The charismatic play and captivating ease of improvisation of pianist Marios Takoushis meet the unique simple, expressive groove of bassist Gabriel Karapatakis. Their music can truly be described as genuine, being timeless and, without denying its origin, remaining true to itself as part of cultural diversity. The musicians’ ideas and compositions are inspired by the Mediterranean culture and tradition, whose melodies coexist happily with the progressive jazz genre.

Vakia Stavrou inevitably enchants every audience with her inviting presence and her mature, clear and mellow voice. The combination of Greek heritage and elements of contemporary jazz reinforces the colourful and captivating sound that so uniquely connects the Mediterranean and the Occident.
