Own material and updates of traditional Greek songs.
Contrabando and Tanirama are a lot more synthesized than Meno Ektos and both have some absolutely brilliant moments. The Bodies and The Knives is brilliant. (email@example.com)
Recommended first album:
I like Contrabando the best, but also recommend The Bodies and The Knives. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Can be found in the bigger chain stores in the U.S.
High for lovers of traditional-sounding world pop. (Neile)
Michalis Armagos, Eleftheria Arvanitaki
Beautiful, urgent singing and music with a strong Greek flavour, simply orchestrated to show off the power of her stunning voice. A different and lovely, folky Greek pop concoction. Delightful, and highly recommended. (Neile)
Albums are all available on CD in Greece, through Greek Music and Video in the U.S., and Trehantiri in London.
