For 25 years, the 60 year old keyboardist, pianist, composer and music producer, and two-time Grammy Award nominee, has experimented with music beyond the boundaries of popular music genres, despite it being labeled under ‘New Age’.
On September 5, the world renowned Greek-American musician Yiannis Chryssomallis, popularly known as Yanni, has announced on his official Facebook and Twitter accounts that he will be performing along with his phenomenal orchestra for the first time ever in Egypt by the Giza Pyramids on October 30.
