Vangelis Katsoulis Group was founded in 1996. Vangelis Katsoulis is the composer, arranger and leader of the group. His compositions are based on the exceptional abilities of these musicians and their idiosyncratic playing. His music bears the traits of his past experiences – classical and contemporary music, minimalism, electronic music, soundtrack writing and of course, jazz. The special character of this music is the result of mixing all these styles and elements and at the same time aiming at clarity, simplicity and emotional directness.

Vangelis Katsoulis Group has recorded four albums “Through The Dark”, “Silent Voyage”, “An Unbearably Short Glance”, "The Exile of Dreams" and played numerous concerts.

“Silent Voyage” was elected as one of the best albums of the year, best albums of the last 10 years and best albums of the last 20 years among all kinds of music of international discography.
