BIRDsessions with Yiannis Mitsios Quintet

BIRDsessions is the place where young music makers come together and you can experience the sound of tomorrow. The intimate jam and get-together in BIRD's café is a favorite for Birdies themselves, home-grown artists, regulars, music students and anyone that has a beating heart for music.

Yiannis Mitsios Quintet is an up-and-coming jazz group from Rotterdam. The quintet, founded on October 2023, by Yiannis, focuses on creating seamless blends between jazz with other genres of rock, pop, hip hop, and world music influences. They create a sound that is both musically coherent and rich in content.

Yiannis' compositions are characterized by lyrical melodies and the exploration of rhythmic concepts such as syncopation and polyrhythms. His diverse harmonic palettes and rich solo improvisation further form the identity of the quintet.

The artists bringing Yiannis' vision to life include Marios Charalambous (Cyprus) on Tenor Saxophone, Nikolas Tsangaris (Cyprus) on Drums, Eva Serrano (Spain) on Acoustic Bass, and Daniel Bulatkin (Czech Republic) on Piano/Hammond organ . Each brings its own cultural elements that together form their harmonious fusion.
