The Greek American singer and oud player draws his repertoire from early 20th century Istanbul, Izmir, Athens and Salonika: a blend of original compositions and rare old urban songs of the Aegean. “Emotional yet virtuosic, Kontanis and company unwind their sensuous dance tunes and nostalgic laments with vigor and deliberation, reimagining a world in which Greek, Turkish, and Armenian styles blend together.” R.Gehr. Village Voice.
