About LAZO i

Born to immigrant parents, in Stuttgart, Germany. Lazos Ioannidis grew up in the Greek village of Lefkonas in Serres and at the age of 14 began to play the pontic lyra while studying at the Conservatory of Serres.

His discography includes 3 albums featuring his own compositions. After travelling from the Balkans to Asia in 2002 he began to work on a project that incorporated elements from many different musical cultures while featuring the lyra. After 6 years of preparation he debuted the project, both in Greece and abroad.

In 2010, he participated as the lyra player at the Greek delegation with George Alkaios in the Eurovision Contest in Oslo. In September 2010, the first world premiere of this musical show “A lyra for all the people” comprising 28 international musicians, took place in Gis Theatre in Thessaloniki for an audience of 4500.

LAZO describes his collaboration with Omar Faruk Tekbilek and his appearances in the Concert Hall of Thessaloniki and Athens, performing his own compositions for pontic lyra, as the landmark moments so far in his artistic path.

In 2015 Lazo began a collaboration with guitarist Pavlo while filming the DVD, “Live in Kastoria” in his home town of Kastoria, Greece. By the end of 2016, Lazo had been introduced to over 10,000 North American spectators in cities such as Toronto, Montreal, New York, Ohio and Los Angeles.

2017 marked his first North American CD release entitled, LAZO. produced by Pavlo featuring original music and described as, 'AN ANCIENT SOUND FOR A NEW WORLD'.

Currently Lazos Ioannidis lives in Toronto, Canada with his family, alongside his career as an artist offering music lessons for the Lyra while popularizing it’s distinctive timbre and musical history.
