Pavlo, a true World Music Artist returned from filming his 4th PBS TV Concert Special – Live in Santorini, Greece. Pavlo was joined on stage by his world class band and some very special guests. The audience enjoyed an evening of Mediterranean guitar like they were on the island of Santorini for a few hours with Pavlo’s signature blend of Spanish / Greek / Rumba / Flamenco music.

Musician Pavlo Simtikidis, also known as Pavlo is a Greek-Canadian guitarist who plays a mixture of Mediterranean sounds with the styles of Greece, Rumba, Flamenco, Spanish, Balkan, Pop and Latin music.

Mostly an instrumental concert, Pavlo’s Mediterranean music was full of different emotions: the audience was energetic, cheered, danced, shouted out and whistled. Over the span of his 20-year career, Pavlo, has released 15 albums, including 4 PBS TV concert Specials.

Special guests included: Lazos Ioannidis on the Lyra. Lazo is featured Live in Santorini PBS, and G. Pinto on Violin. Pinto was featured in Santorini and Kastoria PBS TV specials, Daniel Emmett, a finalist on America’s Got Talent, local talent & guitarist Rob Tardik, Carson Freeman on Sax and Vocalist & Jazz Bistro owner Colin Hunter sharing the stage with Pavlo and his band.

Some of the unique renditions of classics included: Nights In White Satin (Daniel Emmett singing), Love Story (Daniel Emmett singing),Smooth Criminal, Day Tripper, My Way (Sung By Colin Hunter), Bon Jovi’s Make A Memory and Never On A Sunday.

Some of Pavlo’s highlights of the evening includes songs: Latin Love, which was the encore, Fantasia, which brought out all the special guest and their version of Bon Jovi’s, Make A Memory.
