The King of the Lyra: Psarandonis



Adonis Xylouris, aka Psarandonis, comes from a renowned Cretan musical family and is known as the most idiosyncratic lyra player on the island. An exponent of tripped out Cretan music, Psarandonis’ unique three-stringed lyra playing style, his distinctive voice and his inimitable rendition of traditional folk songs has made him a cult legend in Greece and beyond, particularly with a younger generation of Cretan music lovers.

Seeing Psarandonis live is considered to be a once in a lifetime experience. In January 2009, Psarandonis gave memorable performances at the All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival curated by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and hosted on Cockatoo Island, Sydney and Mt Buller in Victoria.
