Recognized as a “bass ace” by Bass Player Magazine, composer and double bassist Petros Klampanis grew up in Greece at the confluence of Mediterranean and Balkan folk music. Now dividing his time between New York and Athens, he continues to cultivate his musical curiosity and seek unique ways to integrate elements of different styles, from classical to pop.
This openness makes Petros Klampanis’ musical discourse a versatile language of biting melodicism, unique writing and intonation. The musician’s award-winning talent has allowed him to collaborate with world-renowned artists such as Snarky Puppy, Greg Osby, Jaques Morelenbaum and Arooj Aftab.
