Power to the people!A family endeavor with passion about music and Greek culture...
Luthieros is a craftsman that loves to take natural materials and give them a new reason for existence: making them able to produce sounds, music, to help people explore their creativity and provoke strong emotions.
Luthieros constructs ancient Greek instruments such as lyres (the music instrument of the God Hermes), modern Greek instruments such as Bouzouki & Baglamas and many more. Moreover, Luthieros loves to share his art with amateur luthiers around the world, to play music, to sing, to create, to have fun, to offer…
Luthieros is based near the ancient Europos, a town flourished during the era of Alexander the Great, whose inhabitants were the first that were ever called Europeans (yeap, it’s true).
But most of all, Luthieros is the Koumartzis familia, a family of musicians, designers, dreamers, craftsmen and craftswomen.

Along with Helen, his wife, founded “Europos’ Musical and Culture Organization” where many young and older people of the local society participate at choir groups, traditional music groups, music festivals etc.
He worked many decades as a veterinarian, and he published two how-to guides about the art of lutherie (A.N.E.M.O. and “Skafto Mpaglamadaki”)
