As an Australian of Greek heritage, Katerini Manolatos’ close connection to Greece has been realised with numerous visits, one of which included her own wedding celebration. It’s only natural then that her love for Greece will culminate in the release of “A Musical Odyssey: Songs from Greece” - some 10 years after the launch of her first CD, “Anamniseis”.

In the lead up to this year’s launch in Cairns last Saturday evening, Katerini says she feels much older and wiser and in charge of a more mature voice that has grown to reflect her own life story. Coming from a classical voice background Katerini has drawn on her training and her Australian-Greek heritage for a unique interperation on Greek Art Song. "The strength of our arrangements is the simplicity of two fine instruments, a voice and a guitar (played by Paul Chantrill). In this there is freedom to present the beautiful music of Greece with depth, passion and purity".

We trust that you too, can embark on your own Musical Odyssey.”
