Hiotis who emerged in the Greek music scene in the early 1950’s invented the four-string bouzouki which brought about a musical revolution in the Greek music industry.  His repertoire consists of more than 1,500 rembetika (Greek blues) and Laika (popular-folk) songs which are popular to this day.

This concert is made possible in part by Arch Capital Services, Inc., The Cyprus Federation of America, Inc., and The NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. Media sponsors are Aktina FM and Aktina TV.
