New beginnings

Cover Resurrection Freedom Candlemaker

After 15 years of working with Louvana Records, the company I have founded with Andreas Trachonitis in 2009, I have decided to step away to pursue further other areas of my career such as producing, composing and generally being an artist. I will be occasionally involved with certain aspects and programs that Louvana is organising and have an advising role when needed. My new album Ageless will be released on Louvana in the coming months so stay tuned. I know it has taken a very long time, but it is what it is. I am very happy with the results and it still rings true to my heart, so I am looking forward to sharing it.
Thank you for reading this.

Below the note from the Louvana regarding my leaving:
'With the utmost respect, gratitude and love, we announce that Louvana Records’ founding member, Lefteris Moumtzis, has decided to step back from his active role as the Artistic Director of Louvana Records and all things Fengaros. After 15 years of serving our vision in countless events, festivals, releases and productions, his involvement with Louvana Records moving forward will be project-based and will have an advising nature while he further pursues his career as a producer, composer and artist. We can't wait to reveal 'Ageless', the upcoming album by Freedom Candlemaker, coming this Autumn.'

New single Resurrection and other news...

Cover Resurrection Freedom Candlemaker

New single Resurrection will released on the 8th of November 2023. Above you can see the cover, a still taken from the video that will be accompanying the song, starring dancer Ioli Kaskani and directed by Andreas Dimitriou of Leka Films. Look out for it on YouTube, Spotify and other digital platforms.

I have been playing this song live for a while now and it has got a special place in my heart and of some other people I know as well. It will be part of the new album Ageless I've been preparing for a couple of years now. But, things always get in the way and the record stays behind. This month I am traveling to Athens to finish it though with a hope for it to be out by January.

Resurrection has been recorded in many different places, my house, Klank studio Utrecht, we have done recordings with Marios Takoushis in Nicosia and Chris Parapagides in Athens, but the main recordings and mixing were done in Studio elevent63 in Nicosia. The song features backing vocals by Nama Dama and Tamara Van Esch, guitar by Foken and drums by Jim Eko.

It took a while, but I feel it was worth it and I am very excited to finally share this song with the world. 

So watch this space. If you are reading this, I love you. 

The Win is out! Read about it and watch the video.

I'm beyond excited to announce the release of my song The Win, along with a wonderful video directed by my friend Mara Christophorou. I would like to thank Andreas Trachonitis for always being there, recording, producing, mixing, Dimitris Oikonomou for the beautiful drumming, Nama Dama for lending her glorious voice and Yiannis Christodoulatos for the smooth mastering.
I would like to thank Mara Christoforou for doing this video with me, Antonis Pouliasis for the genius photos and editing, Costas Drakos for his beautiful cinematography, Anastasia Stacie Vanelli for her magical makeup, Christos Gogakis for the love and lights, Efrosini Mavrou for her art and magnificent headpieces, Sophia Irakleous, Avgoustina Triarou, Whisper Pan and Andria Constantinou for their dancing arms, Andreas Dimitriou for overall valuable help and of course Louvana Records for the continuous support.
Enjoy and share. 
Love to all <3 

New Single The Win announcement

Happy to announce my first proper release in two years. 18th of May will see the release of my new single The Win, which will be a part of my new album Ageless, to be released next winter. The video will be accompanied by a music video directed by young filmmaker Mara Christophorou. Watch out for it on all digital platforms.

Polyphonic Body, Cyprus Retreat

I am so happy to announce this! Myself and Julianna Bloodgood have been scheming for months, dreaming of a retreat in nature that would include a workshop, music, performance, food and rituals and we are finally ready to offer to the world the Polyphonic Body Cyprus Retreat!
Since I have taken the workshop The Polyphonic Body last August in Pelion, Greece, I had the feeling that every artist and performer should experience this at least once. And this was the least I could do. Make it happen in Cyprus, at the very place I live, Vavla. You can read what it is about at the link below. Although, in all honesty, is extremely hard to put the whole experience into words. 

The workshop will take place in nature and in various locations within the village for five full days, and in the evenings we will host cultural music, dance and integration activities also open to the public. The whole retreat will be catered with locally sourced food and we will sleep in different guest houses within the village. 

This will be a powerful and potent journey and myself, Julianna and the rest of the team invite you to refresh, reset, refocus your artistry, heart and voice.

You can book a spot at the Louvana Records websiteOnly 20 spots available!


One last show for 2022

It was so refreshing to be on the road again and confirm that I can still do this. In fact it feels better than ever. I want to thank all of you who came out to the shows in Greece and the UK and for making me feel that there is still a reason to keep doing this, to make music, to go out and play it, to interact and connect with one another. It ended my year in the most beautiful way. One last show left on the 22nd of December at my favourite place in the worls, Prozak in Nicosia. I hope to see a lot of you there. Nama Dama will help me out with a few songs. Check Live section for shows.

Happy few! A performance within an installation...

I'm doing a special performance at the opening of this beautiful exhibition in the ruins of Ancient Amathounta on the 16th of April. The installation is by the artist Andreas Kalli and we have worked together on choosing the music very carefully from past songs of mine as well as unreleased material that I'm preparing for my next album, so they are alligned with the concept of the installation.

I will be accompanied by Nama Dama on backing vocals and keys. There will be some dance and movement involved as well. I am very excited about this. 

The entrance is free for the opening.

A few words from the press release:

'The Archaeological Site of Amathous hosts for the first time a most interesting exhibition of contemporary art in terms of artistic conception. By using a natural material (the bush), Andreas Kalli transcribes the ancient columns of the site to the present day. By having as a driving force, the search for the indissoluble relationship of the human – creator with the social environment and having as its core the artistic and conceptual searches, the concepts of evolution, life, consciousness, collective memory and the trace, Andreas Kalli creates the sculptural installation HAPPY FEW.

The encounter of contemporary art with Antiquity in the public sphere, activates and highlights the eternal and rich dialogue concerning the issues of history, memory, identity, culture and the environment. The exhibition brings to the forefront matters of communication and self-reflection. The viewer is invited to a new encounter with ancient civilization, which urges us all to reconnect with the past in order to rediscover our relationship with time and the space that surrounds us.'

Meliartos soundtrack released!

Today we have the joy to be releasing an Original Soundtrack with Louvana Records. It's a selection of tracks from the music that has accompanied the TV series Meliartos by Loris Loizides, directed by Theodosis Econdomides. We wrote and recorded this last summer with Andreas Trachonitis, playing all the instruments except the bouzouki which was played by Theodoulos Vakanas.
Theme song was sung by Fotis Siotas and lyrics were written by Stavros Stavrou. Album cover was made by George Vasiliou.

Eurotoire album release!

Eurotoire was a brilliant idea by my friend and partner Andreas Trachonitis to make a record with 20 musicians from all over Europe  in the midst of lockdowns and global uncertainty. I was so honoured to have the role of coordinating the programme, be part of the selection team, overlook the music and meet all these wonderful and inspiring young artists.
And today the album is released for the world to listen to on our own Louvana Records! 🙂 'On A Red Thursday' by #Eurotoire.
A record with 15 songs written by 10 songwriters and sung by various beautiful voices are now out there as a double album.

Check it all out here:

News, news, news!

I just realised I haven't posted anything on here since October. Quite a few things happened and I will try and tackle them all in the same news post. 
Generally I feel very good (I never talk about my mental or emotional state on here but why not) and I am in a good space with the new material that I am preparing for a new album. There are about 18 songs kicking about. Pretty much all of them have been through the demo stage, the studio stage, have been added drums and some of them are in the stage of just needing vocals. I am also considering a double album! :-0 I have done about 8 days of studio in November and I'm hoping to get back in there asap to finish it off.

New release:
Today, a version of the song The Age of Now from our performace at the online Fengaros Reacts Vol.2 festival is being released. I am accompanied by the lovely Nama Dama and Tamara van Esch on backing vocals and other little bits. Make sure to stream it HERE!

We have just finished mixing the 15 songs of Eurotoire and have received the first version of mastering. It really sounds like a beautiful and adventurous record. One single has already been released and there are two more coming before the album drops on March 9th. Vinyl will follow about 3 months later in double gatefold. I'm very proud to have been the artistic director of this whole project.
Listen below.

Will post again soon with more news...Thanks for visiting <3 

Astral Body featured on Netflix series

TV series soundtrack

We recently composed and recorded the soundtrack for a brilliant new tv series which is coming out 11th of October on ANT1 tv Cyprus. I watched the premiere of the series and I have to admit that it's like nothing that was ever produced before in Cyprus. The quality in every aspect is very high and I am very happy to be a part of this amazing production. I have also composed the theme song from, which is already out and you can listen to it below. On vocals, my lovely friend Fotis Siotas.

I don't have a TV set and I never watch television, but I would urge anyone who does to watch this. The series is called Meliartos and it's written by the acclaimed actor and screenwriter Loris Loizides. It will be airing every Monday and Tuesday at 22:15.

Eurotoire Session 3 completed!

Session #3 of Eurotoire is completed. We have recorded 15 songs in (technically) 8 days at Studio eleven63 with this wonderful, talented, hard-working bunch of musicians and I don't think I could be more grateful and fulfilled.

First of all, a massive thank you to my partner Andreas Trachonitis for imagining this and putting it together and believing that it could actually happen and for trusting me to pull off the musical direction, as well as the hero that is Maria Kaimaklioti, for making sure everything is in place and in order.

This has been one of the most intense, inspiring and creative experiences for me and I thank all these guys one by one for being there, and for being yourselves, and for trusting and being open and courageous and loving, every step of the way and helping me to grow. #Eurotoire is a one of a kind trip! There was endless recording sessions, tears, house parties, impromptu live shows, food, visits at the beach and immense joy, all captured wonderfully by Jutta as last time on her analog camera. (see below)

And of course the journey is just beginning. Our record is now in the mixing stage with a plan to be released in January 2022 by Louvana Records so everyone watch this space. For more info keep checking

Eurotoire Session 2 completed!

Eurotoire is a brilliant music programme that I have the honour to coordinate and be the artistic director and executive producer of. Thanks to my partner Andreas Trachonitis who designed the programme along with Maria Kaimaklioti we get to host 20 musicians from all over Europe to co-write and produce songs in 3 Sessions, with the aim to produce an album that will be released by Louvana Records. It's so inspiring to follow and be around for the process; the openeness, alertness and presence it requires and the excitement it creates when people are working together selflessly to reach a common goal.

I am truly so proud of this process and the way it's going so far. We have 15 great songs of various styles and amazing musicians and vocalists to perform them on the record! I thank all these individuals from the bottom of my heart for being who they truly are and trusting in this process. This is something very unique that we are experiencing and creating.

Session 2 which took place in the picture-esque village of Lefkara has been completed and we are ready to hit the studio in September to record the actual album. Here are some lovely moments from the session taken by Jutta on analogue camera plus the traditional group photo. Stay tuned!

Scoring a TV series!

We are writing and recording music with Andreas Trachonitis at studio Eleven63, for a TV series that is yet to start filming. We are just wrapping up the mixing and it sounds really cool. The series is by Loris Loizides and it's called Meliartos. It will air in October if all goes as planned for ANT1 Cyprus.
And there will also be a little surprise that I can't reveal at the moment!

Waters of Ganges - New live video and song out!

I had the pleasure of being invited by my good friend Marios Takoushis to kick off this new video series 'Warehouse Diaries', recorded live in his personal studio. It's a wonderful thing he is starting and I hope it catches on. He will be presenting some great artists, local and not. 

The song we spontanteously recorded is a new song of mine named 'Waters of Ganges' written about a recent break up. I will be recording it in the studio soon and it will probably be on the new album I'm preparing to release in 2021.

In the studio with Eleni Era recording second album

Once again we are in the studio with Eleni Era and what a pleasure it is.

We are recording at studio eleven63 with Andreas Trachonitis who is engineering and co-producing.

I am also contributing two songs on this album, one words and music and the other one the lyrics. Working titles are 'Bells' and 'No ending to the wander'.

The album is due for release next spring on Louvana Records. Singles will come out in the beginning of 2021.
Stay tuned!

I was commissioned by Home for Cooperation to write a song about unity between the two sides of Cyprus. I wrote the english part of the song and Vassilis Philippou wrote the Greek Cypriot part. Gurgenc Korkmazel wrote the Turkish Cypriot lyrics. I produced the song and Andreas Trachonitis mixed it at studio eleven63. The song was performed by 37 musicians from both sides!

TEDx talk and performance are up!

My TEDx talk is up now. I actually haven't watched it yet but you can go ahead and let me know what you think. It was a pretty trippy experience for me, both preparing it and doing it. Let me know what you think. You can WATCH IT HERE!

We also did a short live set with the band which you can watch here. I am not happy with the lights and the editing but what can you do?


FREEDOM CANDLEMAKER - full band shows (2)

Savino poster FC


I was invited to do a live set with the Freedom Candlemaker band, and also do a talk at TEDxUniversityOfNicosia. 

It took a lot of effort and digging inside myself to put this story together. My life story basically in 18 minutes, with all the ups and downs, all the important experiences and realisations. I have to admit it has been a very stressful time for me. 

But, it is happening on Saturday, the 30th of November. It's done now. I'm doing it. And it will probably on YouTube in 3 months I think.

Sophie Fetokaki

Sophie Fetokaki has a very special voice and approach to music. She brought in around 8-9 traditional songs from all over the world to work on, plus three of her originals and we managed to get all of it down in five days, with the help of the amazingly skillfull and talented Fred Thomas from London, and of course the sound engineering wizardry of Andreas Trachonitis at - where else - eleven63 studio. Results will come out probably early Fall. I am very happy with it.

Le Guess Who? and shows with Joan As Police Woman

I had such an amazing time watching Le Guess Who? festival in Utrecht. It restored my faith in music and made me feel that we are living in the best yet time for music! From any angle you see it! Material, audience, performance, everything!

I was also thrilled to share the stage with the amazing Joan as police woman and band in Utrecht and Winterthur! Dutch audience is amazing and so is the Swiss. Such great reception and great experience for me overall. JAPW is one of the tightest bands I have ever seen and really fun people to be around! Here is a photo of me with the band and some shots from the shows.

First single from Freedom Candlemaker album is out today!!!

'Abyssal sky' the first single from the forthcoming album 'Beaming Light' is out today! Beaming Light is the first album I am releasing as Freedom Candlemaker, which is the name I'm going to be using from now on for my solo work. I'm very happy and proud for this album. I really enjoyed the slow process of making it and carving the sound along with producer and friend Alex Bolpasis and I love the final outcome. Abyssal sky is the first song on the album, the first song we worked on and it feels like it has to be the first song to see the light of day. It is also the song that lends the title to the album, due out in February on Inner Ear Records, who I'm really happy to be working with. The track also features Mike Kapilidis on drums and Dimitris Chatzizisis on guitars.

I am very looking forward for everyone out there to hear it and enjoy it! Below the artwork for the single, with the magnificent photography of my dear friend Filep Motwary and the layout by Zara der Arakelian. Much more to come soon so stay tuned!

Producing Eleni Era's album

Finally reunited with the gorgeous Eleni Era to record her debut album, to be released by Louvana Records early next year. I had an amazing time producing this album! It felt like living in a dream for week! I believe it is the best thing I have produced so far - including my records - and I think it will blow people's minds when it comes out! What an astonishing artist she is! 


Musician's Mentality workshop / Thessaloniki

I so very much enjoyed doing the Musician's Mentality workshop in Thessaloniki (19-21/10/18). Once again it was such a fulfilling experience for me, sharing so many thoughts, experiences, fears, dreams and insecurities with musicians I respect and admire. This is something I definitely intend to be doing more in the future, because I think it really helps people unlock their creativity and make them more productive and courageous with their art. Thank you all for being there and sharing this with me!
