Born in 1973 in Athens, Greece, and was raised in a music family. His love for the cello inspired him to attend the Athenaeum Conservatoire, Athens, where he received a Diploma under the instruction of cellist Claire Demeulenaere. He furthered his studies in improvisation with musician and composer Stavros Lantsias. The scholarship from the Fulbright Foundation granted him the chance to develop his personal technique on the instrument and to study composition, arrangement and improvisation under the guidance of Ted Greene and James Mahlis in Los Angeles. Upon his arrival he established “Faros” duet together with the saxophonist David Lynch. He composes music for films, theatrical and dance theatre projects and he also gives master classes, seminars and lectures on his unique personal technique on the cello, and creative ways of performing in modern styles of music. On the February of 2005 DNA LABEL records released his debut solo album “Truth”. Yiorgos Kaloudis is based in Athens Greece. He performs his own compositions as a duet with Ruth Hill on the kanun and as a trio with the bassist Sylvan Richardson. He’s also collaborating with Alkinoos Ioannidis, Stavros Lantsias, David Lynch, Takis Farazis, Yiotis Kiourtzoglou, Elli Paspala, and music ensembles such as the Music Ensemble of M.Hadjidakis.
