University Press of Mississippi

Giannis Tatasopoulos, considered the finest bouzouki player of his generation in America, developed a unique style distinguished by remarkable dexterity, phrasing, and instrumental tone. He also was a leader in the exploration of different musical genres with the bouzouki, as well as a composer, songwriter, and vocalist. Born in Athens of parents from Constantinople and southern Albania, he studied and played with most of the great Greek bouzouki players of the 1940s and 1950s before settling in the U.S. in the 1950s.
