Pavlo in concert – The Santorini Tour

For being all instrumental, Pavlo’s Mediterranean music speaks for itself. Over the span of his 20-year career, the internationally renowned, award-winning recording artist, performer and songwriter, has made a name for himself by offering a musical amalgam he simply calls “Mediterranean music” – a blend of Greek, flamenco, Latin, and even Balkan flavours, wrapped in contemporary pop. His music has taken him all around the world.

In 1998, he released his first self-titled album. However, record label executives did not know what to do with Pavlo’s music. It was new. It was like nothing else they had ever heard before. Instead of embracing this new sound, they turned it down, saying, “It’s too ethnic” and “there is no market for this kind of music” and even “get rid of the bouzouki.” Pavlo realized that he had created something original, so he decided to create his own record label, and market himself.

Today, Pavlo’s music is being played and studied all over the world to include: Japan, China, South Korea, Mexico, USA, Canada and many many more. Pavlo annually tours throughout Europe, Asia and North America.

In 2015, “Pavlo: Live In Kastoria” was made, and Pavlo had dreams of airing this new special on Public Television. When he was told that “no one was interested”, Pavlo, and his wife independently contacted the 354+ public television stations across America, one by one. “Pavlo: Live in Kastoria” was so well received, it was picked up in over 150 cities, and then distributed nationally through PBS.

In 2018, it became one of the most successful television concert specials on Public Television propelled Pavlo and his band into a 100 city tour across America; Mexico and Canada.

With a grand total of 15 albums under his belt, Pavlo continues to collaborate with artists all over the world including John Secada; Giannis Ploutarchos: Mario Frangoulis and Jose Feliciano.
