Sounds of Greece
   Join us for a night at the "Opa!"


About Us

Theo and Cristina have created the Sounds of Greece programme to bring together music and dance that will transport you to the Greek Islands for a few hours: Theo performs music and vocals while Cristina's vocals, dancing, warmth and smile, and the duo's connection with guests will ensure your function is enjoyed by all and is fondly remembered for a long time.  

Music has long been a passion of Theo's, commencing violin lessons at the age of nine and progressing to mandolin in his teens. With two cousins he formed a trio that performed at many different types of functions, prior to moving away from Christchurch to pursue his corporate career in various locations around New Zealand. 


After meeting Theo in 2005, Cristina embraced Greek music and dancing with huge passion and became fully conversant with many Greek dances and styles of music.  Her enthusiasm for Greek music, culture, language and traditions is palpable and the wonderful chemistry between the duo assures your guests of an exceptional, fun event.

Cristina and Theo were married on the beautiful island of Skiathos in 2009 and during their visits to Greece have regularly performed in tavernas, their favourite being Anemos Taverna, overlooking the old port at Skiathos where some scenes of the wonderful movie Mamma Mia were filmed.

 

Theo’s favourite self-penned quote:  "When I travel overseas, I always take my mandolin with me as interpreter.  It speaks every language on Earth."
