ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“These three musicians have pooled their enormous musical talents to make this recording truly one of the Beautiful Sounds of Greece.”
- Artemis Mourat

Chris Marashlian - Bass & 12 String Guitar
Panos Chrysovergis - Piano
Michael Stoupakis - Bouzouki & Baglama

Chris Marashlian born in New Jersey, of Armenian heritage. He has performed throughout North America, and Canada, for over 35 years with many different ensembles. His formal musical training began at Berklee College of Music in Boston, but his informal training came from his very talented and highly respected musical family. His principal instrument is electric bass and his solid rhythmic and melodic bass lines
have provided the deep foundation for over thirty Middle Eastern, Armenian, Arabic, Turkish, Greek and American recordings. Chris’ sensitivity and long standing passion for Greek melodies inspired this CD. His thorough understanding of the intricate time signatures, unique structure and vibrant harmony are ever present in his 12 string guitar, electric bass, and orchestrations on this recording. He and his business partner,
Zarouhi, have formed Creative Artists Productions in order to promote and share their love for the musical arts. Chris is also a Composer, Producer and promoter of various Genres of music. A forthcoming catalog of CD productions is currently in the making and will be available in the near future, at www.creativeartistsproductions.com. His first rock and ballad music CD entitled “Catsrevenge” is available from www.catsrevenge.com.

Panos Chrysovergis born in Athens, Greece but now resides in the United States. His formal musical training came from the esteemed Odeon musical Academy of Athens. Chris and Panos formed a strong musical bond when they worked in the New York and New Jersey night club scene beginning in 1999. Panos’ enthusiasm and affection for the music of his homeland shines through in every cut of this CD. His technical proficiency and musical excellence are evident in every song here, in all of his other professional recordings and he also has recorded on Chris`s CD entitled “Catsrevenge”.

Michael Stoupakis born in Brooklyn, New York to Greek parents. This popular performer has performed in well known Greek venues for over 10 years. He has studied bouzouki, baglama and tsoura in New York . Michael’s contributions of bouzouki and baglama have added the perfect color, spice and flavor to this CD.

A special heartfelt note of gratitude and sincere appreciation goes to the following composers, whom without this beautiful CD project would not have been possible. Yiannis Spanos, Manos Loizos, Mikis Theodorakis, Giwrgos Hatzinasios, Dionysis Savvopoulos, Christos Nikolopoulos, Loreena McKennitt (www.quinlanroad.com) and Ara Dinkjian.

Relaxing CD conjures up images of sandy coastline on the azure Mediterranean
With eight tracks ranging from 3-11 minutes, this album actually has 37
songs written by eight different composers. Arranged in medleys, the
instrumentals feature Panos Chrysovergis (piano, synthesizer), Chris
Marashlian (12-string guitar, bass), and Michael Stoupakis (bouzouki,
baglama). Bouzouki played by Nick Manioudakis appears on the first four
minutes of the CD. With its smooth easy-listening feel, this relaxing album
conjures up images of sandy coastline on the azure Mediterranean under a
warm blanket of sunshine. Don’t expect party music for an ouzo cruise.
Rather, “Beautiful Sounds of Greece” is the perfect background music for a
quiet dinner party with close friends. The introspective passages and
lilting tempos encourage a listener to achieve a meditative state that
allows the mind to experientially wander. Also an accomplished
ethnomusicologist, Chris Marashlian clearly does have a passion and
sensitivity for Greek melodies, and he was formally trained at the Berklee
College of Music in Boston. Of particular interest, at track 6, are the
melodies from Hatzidakis and Manos that ebb and flow like the tide through
five different time signatures. Beginning as a ¾-time waltz, the medley
eventually evolves into an 11/8 melody that gets one’s toe tapping with an
occasional heel emphasis.

Inspired also by the tides and emotions, a totally different side of Chris
Marashlian is on another of his album releases entitled “Raqs El Qamar,”
with original music for belly dance routines of varying time length and with assistance of such top musicians as, Hafez El
Ali, Hamit Golbasi, Haig Manoukian, Tamer Pinarbasi, Salah Rhanny,Vasilis
Patrikis. Marashlian, born in New Jersey of Armenian heritage, is clearly a
very talented and accomplished musician. In business partnership with
Zarouhi (Zils and Zaghareet), their Creative Artists Productions is building
a catalog of vivid music that is both shimmering and luminescent. Joe Ross
