STELIOS PETRAKIS/EFRÉN LÓPEZ/BIJAN CHEMIRANI


 

The latest project of this three musicians recognized in different disciplines: Stelios Petrakis, one of the most well-known performers and makers of Cretan lyra al lute of the new generation. Efrén López, Valencian multiinstrumentalist founder of L'Ham de Foc and collaborator with many bands dedicated to European Early music, and percussionist Bijan Chemirani, born into a musical family and heir to the great tradition of persian zarb.
