About Petros Klampanis

Petros Klampanis grew up on the Greek island of Zakynthos, surrounded by the confluence of Mediterranean and Balkan folk music. To pursue his musical passions, he dropped out of the Polytechnic School in Athens and in 2005 he began his double bass performance studies at the Amsterdam Conservatory. In 2008, he completed his formal studies at the Aaron Copland School of Music in New York. Since his relocation to New York City, Klampanis has performed alongside some of the city’s renowned jazz musicians, including saxophonist Greg Osby, pianist Jean-Michel Pilc, and drummer Ari Hoenig.

 

Why Athens Tip: Gazarte is a multi-level creative space located in Gazi, a short drive or train ride from the centre of Athens. They regularly host live performances on their rooftop terrace that has Acropolis views and a panoramic outlook over Athens. Their ‘Main Stage’ hosts larger performers and concerts. The surrounding area of Gazi is also worth exploring, with a great mix of street food, restaurants and bars that remain open until late.
