Biography

Karolos Voutsinas was born in Athens, Greece, of mixed Greek-British parents. His relation with music began at the age of 9, when he started to play the trumpet and piano. His rare talents in all areas of music emerged over the years and since 1981, music has become his profession. His early fascination with jazz has branched out to incorporate folk, traditional, world and sacred music genres to his repertoire, allowing him to develop and mature an easily recognizable personal style of both playing and composing. A long journey of rigour, discipline, and soul searching has led to his personal, artistic and creative development, of which his music is a faithful reflection. He has performed, travelled, lived, in England, Canada, Australia, USA, Ireland, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Holland, Italy, Monaco, Hungary and Cyprus.
