Yannis Kotsiras in Amsterdam

The popular and acclaimed artist has prepared a musical journey that not only represents his own well-known songs but also includes the memorable songs of important contemporary Greek music composers such as Mikis Theodorakis, Manos Hatzidakis, Stavros Xarchakos, Mimis Plessas and others. Additionally, his setlist wouldn’t be complete without the Greek rebetika music and folk songs by Markos Vamvakaris, Vassilis Tsitsanis and Christos Nikolopoulos.
