MK-O is Marina Kanavaki & Oannes
60s-'70s ethos and innovation, astoundingly updated in full electronic form.

Her talent in music and painting is evident from a very early age. Studied art and music in Athens and London. Classical piano, jazz improvisation and classical singing. Now a creative art director. Has had her work shown in Smith΄s Gallery (London) and painting exhibitions in Epohes gallery, in Athens. Her first album, titled POTE & TIIPOTA (Jamais et Rien - Never & Nothing), based on poems by Elias Petropoulos, was released by VIRGIN/EMI, in 2000, in Greece. The album was composed, arranged, performed and produced by her. Cinematic, experimental, lyrical with ethereal vocals. In 2004 the album was rearranged by OANNES and released by NEFELI (Elias Petropoulos’s book editor).

Oannes plays & writes music at a very early age. He has been in a variety of local rock & electronic bands for years, resulting 5 albums of his music. Also written film scores. His solo album OANNES: INVERTED A, based on piano-electronics, was released in 2003. Singer, songwriter, guitar and piano player. Progressive rock, punk - new wave, Detroit techno, electro - industrial, industrial - metal background. Musical Director of SOUND, oldest and most respected Hi - Fi & Musical Magazine in Greece. After producing and rearranging Marina Kanavaki’s album POTE & TIPOTA in 2004 formed the duet MK-O .

The acquaintance of the two musicians in 2000, led to a fruitful collaboration. The first outcome of this was the rearranged version of Marina’s first album “Pote & Tipota” , in 2004 . Today, as a duet [MK-O], are working on a series of albums, first of which was OVATION, their debut album, released in December 2006 by Hitch-Hyke. The multitude of musical influences and the broad working field creates an adventurous listening, hard to categorize. Extended instrumental arrangements coexist with lyrical songs. Rock, classical, techno, psychedelia, industrial, acoustic, electric and electronic instruments as well as a palette of samples varying from from Cesar Franck to Son House, Pink Floyd and Ministry, give a brief idea of the sound of this album. Ovation has been welcomed enthusiastically by the greek press & audience. Their second 2CD album UNREEL was released October 13th 2008 by Hitch Hyke. BLUES FOR THE WHITE NIGGER is their third album, released April 2011 by Puzzlemusik. February 2015 they release their 4th album: ETHER.
