Κυριάκος Σταυριανουδάκης @ Vlatos Jazz
Αυγ 11 @ 8:30 μμ – 10:30 μμ

Vlatos Jazz presents Kyriakos Stavrianoudakis

Γεννήθηκε στη Φλώρινα.Το 1976 μετακομίζουν στα Χανιά και τέσσερα χρόνια αργότερα ξεκινάει μαθήματα λύρας με τον αείμνηστο Εμ.Τζινευράκη και λίγο αργότερα με το Ρός Ντέϊλη, παράλληλα παρακολουθεί και μαθήματα κλασικής κιθάρας. Αργότερα ξεκινάει να μαθαίνει λαούτο και το 1993 κάνει τη πρώτη του εμφάνιση στο κινηματοθέατρο Παλλάς στο 20 Φεστιβάλ Κρητικής Μουσικής & Τραγουδιού με δύο τραγούδια τα οποία απέσπασαν έπαινο Σύνθεσης και Ερμηνείας ενώ συμμετείχε και στο τραγούδι που απέσπασε το πρώτο βραβείο με το Δημ.Βακάκη.

Το 1995 ξεκινάει ένα κύκλο συνεντεύξεων και εγγραφών από παλιούς παραδοσιακούς μουσικούς της Κρήτης. Αν και αυτοδίδακτος στο λαγούτο ο ίδιος θεωρεί ότι όλες αυτές οι επαφές με τους παραδοσιακούς μουσικούς λειτούργησε σαν σχολείο γι’ αυτόν.

Λίγο αργότερα παρακολουθεί μαθήματα Βυζαντινής Μουσικής στο Λαϊκό Μουσικό Σχολείο του Αριστείδη Μόσχου και παράλληλα παίζει λαγούτο στην ορχήστρα του Αριστείδη Μόσχου.
Άλλες συνεργασίες του εκτός Κρήτης ήταν με το Γ.Χατζηνάσιο στη μουσική της τηλεοπτικής σειράς “Σύνορα Αγάπης” με τον Πέτρο Γαϊτάνο και το Μ. Πυροβολάκη.

Οι συνεργασίες του με τους παραδοσιακούς μουσικούς της Κρήτης αρκετές όπως και οι συμμετοχές του στη δισκογραφία.

He was born in Florina. In 1976 he moved to Chania and four years later he started his lyrical lessons with the late Em.Tinnerakis and later on with Ross Dail, while attending classical guitar lessons. Later he began to learn lute and in 1993 he made his first appearance at the Pallas cinema at the 20 Cretan Music & Songs Festival with two songs which received a Composition and Interpretation praise and participated in the song that won the first prize with Dimak Vakakis.

In 1995, he started a series of interviews and recordings by old traditional musicians in Crete. Although self-taught in the hare, he considers that all these contacts with traditional musicians worked as a school for him.

A little later he attends Byzantine Music lessons at the Aristides Moschos Folk Music School and at the same time plays a lute in the orchestra of Aristides Moschos.
Other collaborations outside Crete were with G. Hatzinasio in the music of the television series “Border of Love” with Petros Gaitanos and M. Pyrobolakis.

His collaborations with the traditional musicians of Crete, as well as his participation in the discography.

NAMED A “BASS ACE” by Bass Player Magazine, awarded composer and bassist Petros Klampanis grew up in Greece, surrounded by the confluence of Mediterranean and Balkan folk music. Now based in NYC, he is curious in his approach, always seeking unique ways to intergrade elements from multiple genres, ranging from classical music to pop. Klampanis’ varied musical life journey brings aggressive melodicism, beautiful intonation, and uniquely personal string writing. Klampanis has collaborated with world acclaimed artists such as Snarky Puppy, Greg Osby, Jaques Morelenbaum, Shai Maestro, Gilad Hekselman, Ari Hoenig, Jean-Michel Pilc, Antonio Sanchez. In addition to his extensive list of appearances in the US, including the storied venues of Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Blue Note Jazz Club in New York and Kennedy Center in Washington DC, he has performed at the internationally acclaimed JazzAhead Festival in Bremen, XJazz Festival in Berlin, as well as Megaron Mousikis Athinon, Megaron Mousikis Thessalonikis, Onassis Foundation Performing Centre of NYC and Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre.  His latest album,  Chroma, released by Motema records, was awarded as the best Live album of 2017, by the Independent Music Awards and was featured in major international radio and press outlets including WBGO, FIP (French Public Radio), TSF (acclaimed radio station in France), ‘Jazz’ magazine, DownBeat and JazzTimes. Since 2011, he has recorded 3 albums as a leader, receiving praise for his playing and composing.  His debut album “Contextual” was released by Inner Circle Music a prestigious NYC based label, while his second album “Minor Dispute”,  was selected as one of the best jazz records in 2015 by NPR (National Public Radio USA). Back in his country, Greece, Klampanis’ work is highly acclaimed. His music have been performed by Greek Public Symphonic Orchestra and by MOYSA the Symphonic Youth Orchestra of Thessaloniki. He is  collaborating as producer and performer with major greek artists such as Dimitra Galani, Maria Farantouri and Marios Frangoulis. Recently his passion for new media, social media and visual arts, led to his latest independent YouTube music video project “Rooftop Stories”,  a combination of solo bass and electronic music elements, covering his favourite songs from jazz standards to indie to greek folk music. This evolved into a new experimental live act, that has been presented in NY (Rockwood MusicHall), exclusive house concerts and in the US and Greece. He is currently producing his 4th album and touring with his “Petros Klampanis Trio” in the US, Canada, EU and Japan.

Vlatos Jazz presents Yiagos Hairetis and Maria-Christina Harper

Lute player and vocalist Yiagos Hairetis (Crete) and experimental harpist Maria-Christina Harper (London) collaborate for the first time to produce a dynamic unexpected duet. The duo brings together the traditional music of Crete and the London experimental music scene. The unique rock soundscapes that Hairetis creates with his lute are fused with Maria-Christina’s powerful and experimental playing on her harp.

Yiagos Hairetis got involved in music in a very young age, picking up the lute and other traditional Cretan instruments. His upbringing in Anogia, Crete, home of legendary musicians of Cretan music like Psarantonis and Nikos Xylouris coincided with him listening to classic rock bands such as Led Zeppelin, Doors, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath which influenced him to develop his unique style of playing the lute. This attracted Giannis Aggelakaswho invited Hairetis to record with him for his 2012 album “Όσοκιανδέρνειοάνεμος”. Since then he has performed in many venues throughout Greece and has toured with Aggelakas and Episkeptes. His collaborations include Psarantonis, Psarogiorgis, rock band Last Drive who devoted a song to him, Dimitris Poulikakos and the hip hop band Social Waste

Maria-Christinais an award winning, London based, an experimental electric harp player who creates compositions using a loop, wah and distortion pedal effects. She is the first prize winner of the Wales International Harp Competition (2010) performing her own compositions on the electric harp.MC studied the harp with an entrance scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music. She uses bows and guitar sliders to make the instrument emulate bass, percussive and guitar‐like tones. In 2012MCformed her solo project MC & The 7 Pedalsand recently released her album“Gluten free” under Valentine Records (UK). The resulting music is cinematic, dreamlike and highly atmospheric as it seamlessly blends traditional and avant‐garde techniques to create mesmerizing new forms.

Οι τρείς μουσικοί έχοντας παράλληλες μουσικές διαδρομές στο κρητικό και το παραδοσιακό ρεπερτόριο της ελληνικής μουσικης, συμπράττουν για ένα στόχο.Αυτός είναι η παρουσίαση διαχρονικών μελωδιών από την παράδοση της Κρήτης και του υπόλοιπου Ελλαδικού χώρου μεσα από σπανιες καταγραφές που ηχογραφήθηκαν σε δίσκους γραμμοφώνου από σπουδαίους μουσικούς των περασμένο αιώνα.

The musical “Striftalia” was created in 2014 by three musicians from Chania, Crete, composed by Elias Vlamakis in lyra, Dimitris Vlamakis in the lute, oud and mandolin and Kostas Koukounakis in the guitar and the bullring, The name of the ensemble sows the wooden keys of musical instruments in folk music. The three musicians who have parallel musical traditions in the Cretan and the traditional repertoire of Greek music, join for a goal. This is the presentation of diachronic melodies from the tradition of Crete and the rest of Greece through rare recordings recorded on gramophone records by great musicians of the past century. The “STRIPALIA” musical ensemble has participated in concerts and events in Greece and abroad and they are all members of the traditional music collection of Apokoronas “HARILAOS”.
