Dimitris Mpasis

Dimitris Basis was born in Stuttgart. His parents lived in Germany for some years. He went to Greece for the first time at the age of eight when his entire family returned to Herso, a small village in Northern Greece.

At the age of nine, he started chanting the liturgy in the local church and three years later he began to study Byzantine music. He gained his diploma at the age of seventeen. At the same time he used to sing at many cultural celebrations.

When he was twenty years old just after his first steps in professional singing he was discovered by Stamatis Kraounakis and Warner Music company who immediately offered him a contract. For three continuous seasons he was singing with Alkistis Protopsalti, Stamatis Kraounakis and Lina Nikolakopoulou, and wrote history due to his musical performances under the music director Andreas Voutsinas.

Since then he has worked with collaborated with many well known singers, song-writers and composers such as Christos Nikolopoulos, Lina Nikolakopoulou, Dimitra Galani, Manolis Lidakis, Haris Alexiou, Yiannis Kotsiras, Stavros Xarhakos, Eleni Tsaligopoulou, Mikis Theodorakis, Maria Farantouri, Pashalis Terzis and Dimitris Mitropanos.

In the summer of 2003, he took part in a dedication to the poet Yiannis Ritsos –throughout Greece- with the “Mikis Theodorakis” Orchestra. The poems (“Epitaphios, Romiosini, Ta Dekaohto Lianotragouda tis Pikris Patridas, I Piites tou Kosmou) were composed by Mikis Theodorakis.

In May 2005, he took part in the celebrations in honour of the eightieth birthday of the famous composer Mikis Theodorakis. The titles of the songs which he sang were “The Songs of Passion and Love”. These celebrations took place during the “Greek Festival” in Herod Atticus Odeon.

In the same year’s summer he departed for the first time on a successful solo tour at selected cities around Greece.

We will be lucky to see him, performing live his latest great hits.
