George Sapounidis

Award winning Greek-Canadian singer, songwriter, band leader and bouzouki player George Sapounidis aka Chairman George has turned an unlikely dream into reality. Viewed as something of a curiosity at home, the affable Canadian has performed to sold-out audiences in the world’s most populous nation. Forty tours of China. Televised performances viewed by tens of millions. After a series of acclaimed albums, his upcoming release is the groundbreaking Greek-Chinese fusion album Bringing the Greek Party to China!.

George is nothing if not entertaining. He’s also nothing if not novel, and his unique blend of Mandarin and Greek song is truly disarming. Unity. It’s in short supply at the moment. Enter Chairman George, to bring cultures, civilizations and worlds new and old together.
