Lefteris Christofis is our first Greek Artist/Endorser. He came to our attention via Pat Martino, and is clearly a top (and still rising) player and educator in Europe. Lefteris spent nearly a decade in London, and has worked/recorded with jazz greats Paul Wertico, Jeff Berlin, and Chico Freedman. He is a Blue Note artist and educator.
Since 2011, he is the Artistic Director of the Music Center Athens in Greece.
Lefteris plays a Benedetto Bravo Deluxe 40th Anniversary model.
In May 2013, Lefteris performs with Howard Paul in Greece, as part of the Benedetto Jazz Guitar Workshops. (Athens 5/22/13; “The Party Jazz Bar” and Argos, 5/23/13 “Fougaro”).
