Singer, lyricist and fiction writer Kristi Stassinopoulou, a native Athenian, active on Greece’s alternative music scene for many years, has generated a wide appeal in the international world music circuit.

Accompanied by her long time collaborator composer, arranger, co-producer and multi-instrumentalist -with an all-round grasp of diverse styles- Stathis Kalyviotis, they have made 6 albums of international appeal, Ifantokosmos, Echotropia (WMCE top 10) The Secrets of the Rocks (number 1 in the WMCE in Jan 03), Taxidoscopio (“traveller’s tales from the Greekadelic Queen” fRoots magazine), Greekadelia (number 1 in the World Music Charts Europe in August and in September 2012) and NYN.

Kristi’s poetic lyrics evoke primordial mythology, alluding to imaginary landscapes, sun worship, bright passions and things eternal. 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. (21 Montreal International Jazz Festival, Winnipeg Folk festival, NY Summer Stage, Kennedy Centre, Womex 2002 Germany, Europe in Union, Union Chappel, London UK, Barbican London UK, Fira Manresa, Spain, Forum Barcelona 2004, Spain, 7 Soi 7 Luas, Portugal, Mostra de Artes Mediterraneo, Brazil, to name a few)

Her albums and her performances have been gathering enthusiastic reviews all around the globe (fRoots, UK, Songlines, UK, Guardian, UK, Independent, UK, New York Herald Tribune, USA, Global Village, Jazz Times, El Pais, Spain, Billboard, USA, Time Out, UK, La Presse, Canada, and many more).
