Greek native vibraphonist Dimitris Angelakis began his music journey from a very early age. A journey that started with his first exposure to music from his father and continued with a Fullbright Scholarship to Philadelphia, recording and performing in the US East Coast, exploring the Asian music scene working for a year in China, and playing at large venues and festivals in Europe.
Influenced mainly by Tony Miceli, Christos Rafalides and Joe Locke,
his high energy performances along with his soulful compositions have made him an in-demand performer at festivals around the world (Project Metamorphosis, 41st International Music Festival, World Percussion Festival, Big Day Bach, ISME), while he has also recorded/performed with acclaimed artists in the US and Europe as a guest performer and session musician, with Petros Klampanis, Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez (George Fakans group), Milcho Leviev, Owen Hart Jr, Dimos Dimitriadis, Paris Strother (Prince), Giannis Pavlidis (Dave Leibman), Gianis Papatriantafyllou (Ralph Peterson), to name a few. He has also performed with a number of orchestras/ensembles (Delaware Steel, Thessaloniki State Orchestra, MJS ensemble, Q orchestra, Marossa jazz project) collaborating at the same time with organizations and institutions for various projects (Philadelphia Real Book project, Ionian University, Aristotle University, vibesworkshop Hellenic institute of culture).
Most recently, Dimitris has been working on his new album release as a leader which will be coming up in 2022.
