Sokratis Sinopoulos’ Constantinopolitan lyre and quartet scatter to the eight winds, spiriting us along with them on journeys to different musical crossroads. 
Sokratis Sinopoulos was born in Athens, Greece. He studied classical guitar while taking lessons in Byzantine music and folk song at I.Tsiamoulis’ school where he sang with the school children’s choir. In 1988 he started studying Lyra and Lute with Ross Daly and a year later he joined his group “Labyrinthos”. In the last twenty years Sinopoulos has collaborated with composers, musicians and singers from Greece and abroad in various genres, from folk music to jazz, participating in countless concerts and recordings all around the world. In 1999 he was honored with the Melina Mercouri national award for young artists. In 2011 he created Sokratis Sinopoulos Quartet. The debut album of the quartet, eight Winds  was produced by Manfred Eicher for ECM records and was released in September 2015.
