Heard by over 1 million people during her tour with Cirque Du Soleil, Erini’s voice is characterized by ornaments from the Greek tradition and inspired by far-ranging influences such as jazz, pop and classical music. Growing up in a musical family on the island of Crete, Greece, Erini played the piano and cello and performed with her hometown’s string orchestra and choir. As a descendant of Greek-Anatolian refugees, Erini’s mother introduced her to the Greek - Anatolian musical tradition which ignited Erini’s passion for singing. As a teenager Erini immersed herself into pop and rock which led her to England to study Contemporary Vocals at Bimm at age 18. Being cast as the only vocalist of the show “Kurios” by Cirque Du Soleil in 2014, Erini toured for 3 years, performing a total of 1074 shows. Going on to complete a Master at the Berklee College of Music paved new paths of experimentation for Erini as she redefined the constraints of genre and birthed a new sound combining Greek traditional music with contrasting genres such as, jazz, pop and classical music. Erini’s first single was “Korasion Etragoudage '', a Greek traditional song from Anatolia in a contemporary cello and voice arrangement that went viral and gained 800k views on Facebook. Erini has had the opportunity to showcase her musical heritage at Carnegie Hall and has collaborated with Grammy award-winning artists such as Danilo Perez, Luciana Souza and Terri-Lynne Carrington as well as acclaimed Greek artists such as Vasilis Skoulas, Pantelis Thalassinos, Christos Zotos and Mario Frangoulis. Erini is also a professor at the Berklee College of Music and presents workshops and lectures of Greek traditional music in universities including Harvard, Princeton, Tufts amongst others. In recognition of her efforts to preserve Greek-Anatolian culture, Erini has been awarded the Greek America Foundation’s 40 under 40 Award and the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s Traditional Arts Fellowship.
