Sokratis Sinopoulos Quartet

As one of the few lyra players who perform at an international level, Sokratis Sinopoulos began by playing the classical guitar. He toured around Greece and Europe with the children's choir he was a member of, where he learned Byzantine and Greek folk music. Following a concert in Greece with İhsan Özgen, one of the leading lyra players of Turkey, he decided to switch instruments. He met the Irish lyra master Ross Daly, and joined his band “Labyrinth”, recording many songs. Sinopoulos also released an album featuring Derya Türkan of “İncesaz”. He made his name in the jazz world thanks to the ECM recordings of Charles Lloyd, Maria Farantouri and Eleni Karaindrou. The critics on his first album “Eight Winds” from ECM had this to say: “Creative and sensitive... More than just a mix of a folk instrument with a jazz trio”.
