Autobiography: I was born in 1931 in Episkopi of Rethimnon and I was the last child of a family of seven, a family with with a rich musical tradition. When I was sixteen my bought me my first lyre. However I abandoned it shortly after to deal with the lute, an instrument that I serve piously up to today.
My first public appearance was in a marriage in 1947 in Episkopi. This was the beginning of an important, I believe, professional career. I collaborated with artists as Thanasis Skordalos, G.Markogjannis, G. Stamatogiannakis and more.
My first personal recording was in 1954 and from there on I have recorded 30 more disks of 45 and albums. Certain of them like "Pes to mou gianta me htipas", have become milestones in the history of Cretan music.
