Biography

Born in Athens to Lebanese –Canadian parents, Lara Eidi has always been influenced by her multicultural background- listening to the Woodstock scene of the 60’s from the age of ten and simultaneously traditional Arabic, Greek and Irish song. She began taking classical piano lessons at the age of 9, and studied classical music at Odeo Kodaly till the age of 17, whilst starting to perform at her school and various concerts, one of which included the Kodaly Choir in the 1996 Megaron Mousikis production of Carmen. It wasn’t until after she completed her studies at Deree College in Literature and went to Scotland for her Masters Degree that she decided to pursue music . She started gigging around pubs in Edinburgh , to return to Greece in 2008, to which she was fortunate enough to be involved in the ‘CineMaria’ production at the Megaro with Maria Farandouri, working alongside singers such as Karen Solomon ( whom she had trained with for 3 years as a modern vocalist). She then sang as a lead jazz vocalist for the Gypsy Swing Quintet ‘Hot Club de Grece’, and soon after for a short but productive period worked and recorded as a singer, guitarist and pianist with the indie band Leon,. Simultaneously taking harmony lessons at Odeo Mousikis Praxis and training classically with Nina Kaloutsa, she decided to put together whatever she learned throughout the years and start her own project, working alongside musicians who share her love for variety. Her music is folk based blending celtic, folk rock, and eastern folk elements.
