Konstantia Gourzi is a composer who moulds her musical inspiration through her Western education and her Greek roots. The combination of these different musical directions drives her to consciously explore new sounds by working on the distillation of this knowledge combining the Western and Eastern traditions. By bringing together seemingly disparate sounds from different sources, she blazes new trails of creativity and expression, communicating in a new idiom.
