Stefanos is originally from Greece, where his musical experience began aged 11 when taught the laouto (Greek lute) by Giorgos Deligiannis. A few years later, he began to learn Asia Minor tunes on the oud, and eventually furthered his learning in Classical Oud with Kuriakos Kalaitzidis in Thessaloniki, Greece. By this time, Stefanos had also begun teaching himself guitar.
Performing professionally on oud and guitar from the age of 17, he has explored and developed his knowledge of many genres including world music - blending traditional Mediterranean sounds and rhythms within his own compositions and others – and also jazz fusion, soul, rock, blues, funk and reggae. In 2005, after gaining experiences and formal qualifications in Greece, Stefanos moved to London where he studied and graduated with a BMus in Popular Music in 2008. He has since performed as a freelance oud and guitar player, and teacher, in a wide variety of venues around London, with both his own jazz trio and a range of other artists – such as Noraay’s Creation Project, the Iota group and Melange Collective.
