Notes & Reviews:

The debut album of Greek oud virtuoso and composer Thimios Atzakas features a selection of his own compositions and arrangements that he created over the last years. His style is strongly influenced by Oriental traditions, which merge with his background in European Jazz and contemporary classical music, creating an intriguing fusion, a sound world of its own that defies any concrete definitions. The ensemble consist of seven musicians from various backgrounds of world, classical and jazz music, who have played together in this formation for many years, creating mutual musical understandings that transcend conventional stylistic boundaries. "Udopia" sometimes resembles a story from Arabian nights, a fairytale that melds ancient and new elements, the West and the East, and explores the very roots of our musical heritage.
