Antonis Apergis is a composer, a lyricist and a multiple instrument player. Aside from his guitar, which is his major instrument, he also plays the oud, the qanun and the contrabass. Apergis further gained wide recognition through his compositions and orchestrations as he started transcripting pre-classic music, composing music for puppet theater and orchestrating for big bands at a very young age. He has worked with some of the leading names in Greek music, both as a musician and an orchestrator. Together with his quartet he will perform compositions blending a multitude of folk sounds ranging from Greek to Arabic.
