Ross Daly has travelled the world, mainly in the Middle East, Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent, studying various forms of local music traditions. In 1982 he established an educational institution called Labyrinth Musical Workshop, in Houdetsi, Crete.
More than 250 instruments that Daly collected during his travels are on display. Since 2002 seminars and “master-classes” have been conducted every year with some of the greatest teachers of traditional music from around the world. It is a meeting point for musicians and students and is recognized as the leading institution in Greece today, in the field of education of modal and traditional music in general.

Daly has released more than 35 albums of his own compositions and of his own arrangements of traditional melodies collected during his travels.

Ross Daly is the originator of the term Contemporary Modal Music, which refers to contemporary compositional works that draw their influences and inspiration from the broader world of Modal musical traditions, primarily (although not exclusively) found in the vast geographical region between Western Africa and Western China.

VLATOS JAZZ18 Oct Ross Daly



I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.

    I have been living near Kissamos for 10 years. Also travelled extensively most of my life and came to Greece first in 1976 to teach English. Decided to retire here eventually.
