Singer, lutist & composer from Greece, Martha Mavroidi was established as a first class folk musician and singer of the new generation, already by her critically acclaimed debut album, The Garden of Rila. Martha’s extraordinary voice combines the Greek and Middle Eastern ornaments and microtonal subtleties, with the rich colors of Bulgarian singing. Her dazzling technique on the lafta and the saz, is often compared to the skills of master musicians of both folk and jazz origin. In 2012, she has performed at Womex Globalkan Scene and since then she has toured throughout Europe with her trio. March 2013, she featured in the cover of fRoots magazine as “Balkan music’s rising star”. Martha Mavroidi is the artistic director of Tinos World Music Festival.
“You could be in Athens, Istanbul, Sofia, Manhattan but the truth is that, with Mavroidi, you are in all of them at once.”
