The Akritas musical band was founded in 1972 by Stavros Logaridis. Members of the band were, apart from Logarides, Aris Tasoulis, Giorgos Tsoupakis and Dimos Papachristou.
Akritas released in 1973 only an album with the title of the band and after they collaborated in various live appearances with ‘Bourboulia’ and Vangelis Papathanasiou, they were dissolved.
The album was extremely avant garde, combining electric rock sound with elements of Western music as well as Greek traditional music. It was, but still remains, one of the best samples of experimental rock sound, which at the same time created an important artistic result.

Genre: Progressive Rock characterize it, but without musical knowledge, we think it’s different. Why can you simply blush with ethnic listening, long before the invention of the genre? And on the other hand this ‘progressive’ is somehow referring to ‘fabricated art’. The Akritas Progressive Rock? Okay – right you are if you think so).
