The musical ensemble  “XROES” was founded in 2004 in Heraklion, Crete where it is still based. Its main goal is to bring together both professional musicians and, above all, a broad circle of amateurs who wish to collaborate in wider artistic operations. In the fourteen years of their development, they have presented a significant number of original projects. Most of these works are circles of songs and speech by the musician Dimitris Sfakianakis, artistic director of the group.

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.
