Biography

Singer, lyricist and fiction writer Kristi Stassinopoulou, a native Athenian active on Greece’s underground music scene for many years, has generated a wide appeal in the international world music circuit. The successful blend of traditional greek rhythms and sound colours, haunting Byzantine vocal lines, rembetika music, psychedelic rock, ambience and electronica, combined with Kristi’s vivid scenic appearance and personality and her colourful band, sparked great response and led to frequent appearances in music festivals and clubs mostly in Europe, N. America and Brazil…

Kristi’s poetic lyrics evoke primordial mythology, alluding to imaginary landscapes, sun worship, bright passions and things eternal.

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Stathis Kalyviotis was born and grew up in Athens. In 1981 Stathis formed one of the first Greek punk groups, the internationally unknown “Anipofori” (The Unbearables), the first punk band singing in Greek. During the 80s he cooperated with some of the most important groups of the Greek independent rock music scene (Echo Tatoo, Low Noise, Enouma Elis)

In the late 80s, he started cooperating with Greek singer-lyricist Kristi Stassinopoulou. Together with Kristi, with the drummer Vangelis Vekios and guitarist Kostis Anagnostopoulos they formed “Selana”, an underground band with an “ethnopunk” sound, also often performing as the support group of the late Pavlos Sidiropoulos.

Beginning of the ’90s Stathis started using also traditional string instruments and experimenting with electronics and live looping.
