The band Samebito (Alexandros Dandoulakis, Michalis Katachanas, Grigoris Theodoridis, Dimitris Klonis) takes its name from the short story “The Gratitude of the Samebito” by Lafcadio Hearn, a writer of Greek origin who was born in Lefkada and died in Japan at the beginning of the 20th century. Based on ancient myths and local traditions, Hearn’s work ranks among the most important in Japan.

Half man, half shark, Samebito lives and works in the palaces of the seas as a guardian of the King. Because of a mistake, he is banished to land and forced to live alongside humans. He takes refuge in Totaro’s house and helps him marry the woman he loves.

The musicians create original compositions inspired by the turbulent life and work of Lafcadio Hearn, combining them with compositions by Debussy, Tchaikovsky, Frisell and Hadjidakis, creating a unified musical universe of exploration, truth and beauty.
