the BandA ecLectics

The BandA ecLectics were put together in September of 2006, by Greek composer and pianist, Petros Sakelliou. The group consists of crossover musicians beyond the jazz and classical mainstreams, influenced but not bound to world traditions, whether it's brazilian, cuban, argentinian, or greek. The music that Petros composes for the instrumental chamber-jazz ensemble, blurs the boundaries between composition and improvisation merging jazz, world and classical influences into a unique, personal style, a very visual, multi-layered and high energy music. Following their debut performance at Kodak Theater, the band has been constantly performing their newly recorded album (Angeles Los Boston), in Boston and New York City. In June 2008, BandA recorded a new album, "Visual Music Circus", yet to be released in 2009. Petros Sakelliou received important critical acclaim in 2007, winning the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz composition competition prize, with his composition, "Swingalong", from the album "Angeles Los Boston".
