THE whole world should know Yanni. He is Greek. Greece has many philosophers, like Socrates. Socrates lived many years ago but his words, like rain, still feed the soil of thought today. In our time there is another man from Greece. His name is Yanni. His music is not for just his nation. He took players from everywhere on earth, and music styles, and brought them together. This is very hard to do! But he spent his life working and learning how to do this. His music always makes you think, and the way he brought the world’s musicians together makes you think.

     He has gone higher than any one country. He has broken every border with his concerts and music. His musicians are like soldiers who fight against all that separates us. For that reason I think Yanni is the Socrates of music.
