Christina Syriopoulou – vocalist

Christina Syriopoulou is one of the most soulful and multitalented artists in Greece. Her passion for jazz singing was born while she was studying in Paris and came across the intercultural crossings of jazz, bossa nova, latin and bebop that were going on in that city. Having finished a master’s degree in Music Studies and having a diploma in classical piano, she went on to study jazz phrasing at the Athenaeum Conservatory and also attended private courses with singers Irini Konstantinidi and Tamuz Nissim, and extended masterclasses for voice and performance with Μirka Yementzaki, Spiros Sakkas and Yannis Μitrou. She’s currently also studying jazz piano privately with George Kontrafouris. Christina sings swing, blues, soul, funk and traditional music with several bands such as Hot Club de Grece, and has shared the stage among others with musicians such as Bob Wijnen, Ben Wolfe, Leonardo Corradi, Yannis Loukatos, Spiros Rassias, Danielle Raymondi, Christos Digkas, and Yiorgos Georgiadis. She is doing a long research on the abilities of a  “singing body” since 2011 along with the International Laboratory of performing Arts- AlmaKalma, cultivating new forms of art through the research of  roots and traditions and participating as a performer to all the performances of the Laboratory (such as “Allain Ginsberg and blues”)
