The Passionate Music of the Sahnas Brothers Grace Center Stage at the 13th Annual Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival
Moondo recording artists, Thano and Demitri Sahnas, bring Spanish style guitar to the amphitheatre in Downtown Carefree for Thunderbird Artists' 13th Annual Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival, January 20th, 21st & 22nd, 2006. Their music creates a sound and energy that captivates people everywhere they perform. Their sound can be described as a festive blend of worldly melodies influenced by the music of Greece and Spain. The Sahnas brothers currently have four CD titles in world wide distribution with Moondo records: Mykonos to Madrid, Romanza, Odyssey and Songs for the Season.
Thano and Demitri began taking guitar lessons together when they were 9 and 10 years old. When they were 13 and 14, they began performing traditional Greek music professionally. The enthusiasm they received from their audiences at such a young age was overwhelming. It became clear that they had not only found their passion, but they had begun their life's work.
This passion and energy in their live performances, both as a duo and with their ensemble Turning Point, has brought them to share stages with world renowned artists such as Otmar Liebert, Mark Antoine, Jessie Cook, Bobby Caldwell, James Brown, Tower of Power, Michael McDonald, Gato Barbierre and many more.
For Thano and Demitri, their mission is simple......play music that touches the heart and perform it with passion.
The Sahnas Brothers will be accompanied by 175 world-class, juried fine artists from throughout the country, jazz group Morpheus Music, Andean group Huayllipacha and classical guitarist Patrick Ki.
The Sahnas Brothers, along with the other musical entertainers, will be performing and selling CD's throughout the weekend at the Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival. The festival will take place in downtown Carefree, near the corner of Easy and Ho Hum streets. Hours are 10am to 5pm each day. Admission is free on Friday and $2 on Saturday and Sunday. Parking is free all weekend.
