Alkinoos Ioannidis is a singer-songwriter who has released multiple solo albums, most of which have gone gold or platinum. As a guest singer, he has performed on more than 40 albums with various artists. He has also written songs, arranged and produced albums for other artists, as well as music for dance and theater, while his symphonic work is often performed by orchestras in Greece and abroad. His influences range from traditional Cypriot music, Greek composers of the last decades, Byzantine, Classical and Rock.
Playing solo, often without a microphone, Alkinoos Ioannidis lets the songs and the environment take the lead. Open to all of the miracles of live performance, as well as the countless possibilities created by letting the moment and the audience guide him, he plays and performs his songs in their simplest form, taking us back to the moment of their creation and connecting us with the very essence of this sacred form of Art. Every concert of Alkinoos goes beyond his poetry and musicianship, transforming the show into a deep, unforgetable experience.
Following the centuries-old tradition of the Troubadours, Alkinoos travels from city to city, sharing the sensations, feelings, thoughts, experiences, dreams and realities that concern us all. His amalgamation of Near Eastern influences, together with Folk, Classical and Rock musical elements, combined with his unique vocal delivery, have made him popular not only in the Greek-speaking community at home and abroad, but also among people of different ethnic backgrounds from around the world.
This event is being held under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Cyprus, the Embassy of the Republic of Cyprus and the Honorary Consulate of the Republic of Cyprus in Los Angeles. This program is made possible thanks to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), with support from the Dean of Humanities at UCLA.
