Born in Sydney Australia, Maria’s musical influences are many; but none stronger than the music of her parent’s homeland.
Maria is from a family with a backround in music and dance, developing her unique sound which identifies her generation. This fusion of Australian society and Hellenic traditions culminate in music and lyric, reaching out to all cultures that have influenced Australia.
Maria’s musical interests began with the violin and progressed in the classical influences, peaking as a classically trained flautist. Shortly thereafter she rebelled and moved to the not so structured world of jazz and blues.
Her appetite for expression furthered her exploration through various forms of world and ethnic music, bringing her full circle to the sounds of her parent’s homeland, melodies and modes etched deeply into the soul of the Mediterranean.
