Dimitris Soukaras is a Classical Guitarist based in the UK. Through his imaginative programs, featuring new music and arrangements, as well as through his chamber music collaborations, he tries to redefine the relationship between classical guitar and the audience. His interest in new music and the process of collaboration started from a very young age and recently led him to create a project featuring some of Greece’s most high-profile composers’ works that were dedicated to him.
