    Yanni Live!

    When you think of Yanni, you probably think of his soaring beautiful piano music. He was born 54 years ago in Greece and it was clear even in childhood that he could be a very talented musician. He started out playing rock music, but soon changed to a pop style and ultimately ended up playing a new age musical style. He has become an icon in the style and is one of the best non-classical pianists in the musical world. He was relatively unknown until his concert movie “Yanni Live at the Acropolis,” which immediately became very popular. Why did he take the name “Yanni”? It is because his original Greek name was Yanni Chryssomallis, which is too long for many people. Now, he’s back on tour. Last year, he released an album called “Yanni Voices” which has many singers performing his songs. Even if you haven’t heard it yet, you can buy Yanni tickets and you’ll get to see him and the vocalists in person, and hear some of his best music up close!
