Manolis Karantinis

Manolis Karantinis is a musician, composer and astonishing bouzouki virtuoso from Athens, Greece. His unique style of playing incorporates elements of RebetikoMiddle Eastern music, Italian traditional music, Flamenco and Jazz and makes him one of the most acknowledged contemporary bouzouki players in the world.

In this website you can find some video lessons by Manolis Karantinis for beginners, intermediate and even advanced players.

For some, he is the world’s best. He has collaborated with some of the most popular Greek singers and composers and has given numerous performances in Greece and abroad.

In February 2012 Manolis Karantinis gave an evening seminar on the bouzouki in London, UK. The seminar is available on this website in two main parts.

In June 2013 we filmed Manolis again in Athens making an extensive analysis on bouzouki playing. We are currently distributing part of this filming.
