Maria Kritsotaki (vocals), Yannis Iliakis (drums) and Vassilis Tzavaras (guitar) together with Miriam den Boer (violin) created the free improvisation quartet Rabbit’s Eye and released their first CD in spring 2022 entitled “the damage was terrific” on the American label FPE records.
Three of the members of Rabbit’s Eye, Kritsotaki, Iliakis and Tzavaras present part of their sound path and join Dimitris Chiotis on the lyre. An improvisational live full of sonic twists and turns.
Dimitris Chiotis was born in Athens and studied pedagogy. From a young age he has been involved in music with the Cretan lyre as his main instrument. In recent years he has designed an electric version of this instrument which gives new sound possibilities. At the same time he has studied various instruments of the Middle East such as the Arabic oud, the Afghan rabbab and the Iranian kamanche. He studied Byzantine music and the repertoire of Ottoman, Arabic and Persian music. He recently released his first solo album “Alati” on Austrian Alessa Records (October 2021).
