Sotos first personal album
All the compositions in my first personal album are purposed to feature my drumming style and influences. Besides my ecceptional teacher Kostas Anastasiadis , I was influenced by Steve Gadd, Horacio el Negro Hernadez, Vinie Colaiuta and many many others. Also exploring the polyrhythmic genres of my hometown Kozani and studying the rhythms of India, enriched my music vocabulary and expanded my perception in music. Keeping the groove solid and strong but still exploring the sounds and potentials of the drum set is my basic principal and philosophy
I had the joy and great fortune to visit Sotos in New York while chiseling his musical influences with the East Coast drumming. There we first discussed the creation of this C.D and the days of dreams came to life once again through Sotos. I consider a great honor to coexist with all these wonderful musicians and friends during the creation of this C.D. My beloved Sotos I wish the best your life and all the success to your first album's release. Vasso Dimitriou
