Canadian-born, world-renowned guitarist Pavlo will broadcast his concert TV special “Pavlo: Live in Santorini” on Saturday, February 12, at 3:00pm EST on WLIW21 PBS New York in the United States.
In this performance, Pavlo brings the beauty of one of Greece’s most famous islands to life through his Santorini-inspired compositions.
A scenic sunset and panoramic views of the white and blue structures on the island’s cliffs form the backdrop as Pavlo becomes the first artist to bring a concert film from Santorini to North American television.
Pavlo’s special guests include his band along with “America’s Got Talent” finalist Daniel Emmet, who sings “Nights In White Satin,” and Benise, “The Prince of Spanish Guitar,” who adds his signature touch to “My Life Is Going On / Bella Ciao.”
The setlist includes new music combined with a few classics, including an arrangement of Bon Jovi’s “Make A Memory” and “Love Story.”
Over the span of his 20-year career, Pavlo has released 15 all-instrumental albums. Born in Toronto to Greek parents, the guitarist made a name for himself by offering a musical amalgam he simply calls “Mediterranean music” – a blend of Greek, flamenco, Latin and even Balkan flavors, wrapped in contemporary pop.
Pavlo’s music has taken him all around the world. Along the way he’s performed for royalty in the likes of Prince Charles and worked and toured with artists such as José Feliciano, Jon Secada, Olivia Newton-John and The Tenors.
