Christos Syngelos
Χρήστος Σύγγελος

 
Biography

Christos Syngelos was born in Athens, Greece, and his musical education began with the classical guitar. He later studied Byzantine music, which led him to shift his focus towards modal music in general, and more traditional instruments such as the oud and lavta. In 2013 he formed the Rima Oud Duo with Stavros Papakyritsis, and they released their first album in 2015. Christos also composes and adapts music for theatre, teaches oud, and is a member of the four-piece Dorόs ensemble.
