Pavlo

A Canadian-born son of Greek immigrants, "Greek God of the Guitar" Pavlo Simtikidis' [web site | Amazon.com] Mediterranean sound mixes Greek and Latin folk music with pop sensibilities. In the middle of a flamenco riff, Pavlo has been known to flip the guitar over his head and play it backwards, a la Jimi Hendrix.

As a boy in Canada, his mother often encouraged him to get up on the kitchen table and dance to bouzouki music. As a young man he rejected the traditional music of his parents for a time and was influenced by pop and rock and roll, but he returned to his Greek roots and infused it with popular energies and Latin rhythms to create a unique style he calls "Mediterranean." In the 1990s, when Pavlo took his Greek-flavored tapes to record companies, he was turned away. He said, "They'd look at me and ask, 'Why would anyone want to listen to bouzouki music?' But I kept at it because this was the music of my heritage." Now a veteran stage performer, recording artist and two-time Juno Award nominee, Pavlo's musical stature has led him to tape TV specials in Canada for Bravo! and the CBC, and for PBS in the U.S.

"Some of the best Mediterranean music you'll ever hear... Pavlo's team melded the best of Greek and Latin sounds on a wondrous set that mixed simple and intoxicating rhythms with frenetic finger work on guitar and bouzouki. Earthy folk tunes such as 'Café Castoria' combined modern beats with eternally Mediterranean sounds, feeling as if you were walking by an ancient ruin in Epidarous on the way to the modern square."
