Yanni

Born and raised in Kalamata, Greece, Yanni Hrisomallis (pronounced Chrysomallis, more or less) followed other paths before his music became his primary focus. At age 14 Yanni broke a national swimming record in Greece, and even dreamed of becoming an Olympic swimmer. He came to the United States in 1972 and attended the University of Minnesota, earning a B.A. in psychology.

Born and raised in Kalamata, Greece, Yanni Hrisomallis (pronounced Chrysomallis, more or less) followed other paths before his music became his primary focus. At age 14 Yanni broke a national swimming record in Greece, and even dreamed of becoming an Olympic swimmer. He came to the United States in 1972 and attended the University of Minnesota, earning a B.A. in psychology. After college, Yanni was the keyboardist for a Minneapolis-based rock band called Chameleon. What happened after that is history. He now has his own recording studio, and has sold over 10 million albums. Being a self-taught musician, Yanni can neither read nor write music, but rather write down his compositions in his own special shorthand. He has perfect pitch, and composes all of his own music.

Most of his albums have been on the Private Music record label, but is now signed with Virgin Records/EMI. He has done numerous TV and feature film soundtracks, plus other projects such as music for commercials. He divides his time between L.A. and the Seattle, WA area, and is now an American citizen. He was born on November 14, 1954. « hide
