Greek Bouzouki Sounds Αt London Olympic Games

The Greek Bouzouki School of Yiannis Polykandriotis in the UK will represent Greece and its traditional music in the artistic programme of the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The fifty-member orchestra is made up of male and female bouzouki players, aged between10 and 32, has a strong presence in the British capital, and was chosen after a relevant competition amidst several Greek bands.

The orchestra will perform at 15 cultural and athletic events, including the celebrations of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.

Yiannis Polykandriotis has been employed by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Cyprus in order to teach the bouzouki and traditional Greek music to the students of the Greek and Greek-Cypriot communities in the UK.
