George Poulantzaklis was born on the 14th of July 1971 in Akrini (Greece) and spent his childhood days in both Greece and Germany. At the age of 11 George began playing the Pontic kemenche and a short while later the Kemane, an instrument played in Cappadocia and some regions of Pontus. At the age of 14 he was playing at weddings, dances and cultural events. George's interest in music has led him into the research of ancient Greek and other Byzantine musical instruments such as the Kemane.
