John "Yianni" Roussos

Santouri

John “Yianni” Roussos has performed on the santouri in the northeastern U.S. since 1972. He played for many years with the Pericles Halkias Family Orchestra in New York City and more recently with musicians from Andros, Andonis and Dimitri Saravanos, for the local Andriotiko communities.

Yianni is also a respected santouri maker and has crafted most of the instruments played at camp by his students. He lives in New Jersey.
