The families of my parents were born and had lived in the beautiful Greek Provinces and cities of Mycrassia, (Asia Minor), and Smyrna - in now what is known as Turkey. Of Greek Nationality - their homeland no longer exists. The refugees from Mycrassia had to make new homes for themselves. My people resettled on the islands of Lesvos, and Kastellorizo, in Piraeus, and in Australia.
We are known as "Mycrassia'tes"
They brought with them, their belongings, and their memories, their priceless treasure of Greek culture, music and song, including traditional rhythms of Greece, such as the Re'Betico, Tsifteteli, Sousta,
Sirto, and the Kalamatiano.
I was raised and educated in the Northern Territory and spent my senior schooling years at Ipswich Girls Grammar School in Queensland. I studied music at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music.
Upon graduating, I furthered my own research of 'roots music', world music rhythms, lyric and voice. As well as this, I was composing and producing albums for a variety of artists.
