Christos Mark is a New York based indie singer, songwriter, musician and activist of world cultures. Going beyond just the genre of dance-pop, his music brings together eastern and western styles and hits. Half Greek from his mother’s side, Christos’ style blends also with the spirit of the traditional Greek blues, called the ‘rebetiko’.
Christos Mark graduated from NYU. He majored in Hellenic Studies and the Classics, while developing his music independently. He was kicked out of four preschools, and grew up listening to Greek artists at home, like Mikis Theodorakis and George Dalaras. By 2013, Christos’ style was solidified on his walks around the streets of NYC – and in the city’s dance clubs – mixing electro-dance elements and the rebellious, free-spirited soul and rhythm of the Greek rebetiko.
Christos hopes to use his music to help people in Greece who are suffering now from the crisis. Currently, unemployment is [37%] in Greece. Behind the headlines, help is needed to bring basic medicines and food to millions of Greeks who have lost their jobs and ways of caring for their families.
