   Stelios Lainakis and Georgios Bakalakis                                                           Two maestros Manolis and Stelios





I was really glad when I found these two clips on YouTube. I will never forget when my wife and I met and listened to Fotis Katrakis (he played together with Stelios Lainakis) for the first time.  We entered Xarxalis and of course there was music on but also the tv set. Who played? Fotis Katrakis did at the same time he was watching the match on tv. It looks so easy and relaxed when he plays, fantastic. If you like this kind of music there is a cd with Fotis Katrakis called "Ta kalitera"  which is a very good recording indeed.

                                                                                     and his son Leonidas Lainakis 



       Here Leonidas Lainakis plays a Xaniotika Syrta and as we love the city of Chania this tune of course has its place in our homepage.




               The singer Xara Lainakis is of course also a member of the family, here together with her brother.
