George Mylordos: Bouzouki / Vocals

Born and raised on the island of Cyprus, George had a passion for the bouzouki from an early age. He picked up the instrument at the age of 12 and became quite successful in a relatively short period of time. By the age of 15 he was participating in most major school and community musical performances. Within a few years he became quite known in Nicosia for performing at various taverns and hotels.

George came to the United States in 1982 and begun performing at various Greek nightclubs throughout the country. The 'nightclub period' lasted for 12 years, and during this time he performed and mingled with musicians and singers from many cultural backgrounds. In 1996 George received a degree in music education from San Francisco State University.

Being one of the founding members of KYMATA George has remained committed to the band ever since its formation (1994). Drawing from his exposure to a wide variety of musical cultures, interaction with musicians from different cultural backgrounds, formal and informal musical training, and leadership skills, he has become instrumental in the success that the band has enjoyed ever since.
