Alkinoos Ioannidis is one of the most well loved Greek songwriters and performers. Since signing to Universal Music in 1993, his prolific output (11 solo albums and 40 collaborative releases) has only been matched by his touring schedule, which has included shows in major cities in Europe, the US and beyond.  Standout performances include Madison Square Garden and The Lincoln Centre (NYC), Queen Elizabeth Hall (London), Berlin Philharmonie, The Acropolis Theatre (Athens) the ancient theatre at Epidaurus and the Glazunov Hall (St Petersburg).

His amalgamation of Cypriot and Greek influences along with byzantine, classical and rock music elements, in addition to his unique vocal delivery, have seen him transcend the confines of the international Greek community and have resulted in his first worldwide release, “Local Stranger”.

He performs with Yiorgos Kaloudis, a regular partner in crime and cello and Cretan lyra virtuoso.

Two unique performers on stage, one special voice and songs prepped and ready to break through cultural and language barriers.
