Drummer

Thanos Hatzianagnostou was born in the city of Volos (Magnesia - Greece). From the age of 13 he started playing drums and very soon he became a member of a local metal band called “Rafferty rules”, recording and performing in festivals all over Greece. In 2005 he moved to Athens, in order to complete his music studies in Modern Music School.

 

With the guidance of the renowned teacher Nikos Sidirokastritis he turned his attention towards jazz and improvisational music. He graduated in 2007, having attended several jazz workshops and master classes with various jazz musicians and drummers. Since then he has been performing with many jazz groups and in the meantime he’s been teaching drums.

In 2009 he started composing his own music and in the fall of 2010, along with the jazz vocalist Irini Konstantinidi, he formed The Wonder-fall Quartet, where his compositions began to “shape up” and obtain the sound of European contemporary jazz scene. In November 2011 the debut album of The Wonder-fall Quartet is being released through the group's web site: www.thewonderfallquartet.com
