Sotiris Papatragiannis

He was born in Athens and since his early years, he was enchanted by the “rebétiko” music. He has studied drawing at the “Plaka” and “Tasos Rigas” school and he graduated from the “Spiros Ornerakis” school of arts. He has also taken lessons for special fx and special make-up, for shadow theatre puppets construction and as a tattoo artist. He has worked for many years as an illustrator and cartoonist for publishing firms, magazines and newspapers. He is a self-taught musician and singer and he belongs to the top-league of his generation's performers. At the age of 15, he started singing and playing the guitar and a few years later he started playing the baglamá. Since 1997 he has worked alone or with various bands, singing "rebétika" and "smyrneïka" in most "rebetadika" and music halls of Athens, and also at many concerts throughout Greece and even Europe (Holland, Belgium, Austria, Germany, Swizzerland etc). He was in charge of the rebetiko music hall “Misirlou” for two seasons (2005/06-2006/07). He has by now worked with some of the most important people of the rebetiko, like: Agathonas Iakovidis, Giorgos Xindaris, Stelios Vamvakaris, Spyros Liosis, Kostas Kaldaras, Vaggelis Korakakis, Michalis Zampetas, Nikos Tatasopoulos, Haig Yazdjian, Manolis Pappos, Antonis Papaioannou, Manolis Dimitrianakis, Christos Konstantinou, Spyros Polykandriotis, Lela Papadopoulou, Katerina Tsiridou, Nikolas Syros, Thymios Stouraitis, Antonis Ainitis, Dimitris Kranidas, Giannis Papavasiliou (Vlahos) and many others, as well as with the “shadow theatre” players Thanasis & Kostas Spyropoulos, Ilias Karellas, Athos Danelis and Dimos Vougioukas, for a number of common appearances. He has published one personal cd, at 2011, by the title "Romantza", produced by "General music" and "8th Nota". He has also participated at the cd’s of Katerina Tsiridou (“Kismet”, “Opou ki an ise gyrise”, "Aman Katerina"), the soundtrack of the international documentary “My sweet canary”, the cd of Nikos Tatasopoulos (“Osa chronia ki an perasoun”) the cd of the Latin-Swedish band "Faela" ("Por el mundo") and more.
