Angélique Ionatos is a peerless Greek guitarist and singer with a 45-year career boasting around twenty albums.
Recognized as one of the main 'World/Folk Music' artist from Greece, she returned in October 2015 with a new album : "Reste la lumière", which looks like being one of her most complete works. 

The universe portrayed in Angelique Ionatos's work is inextricably linked with the spheres of poetry and literature.
She has often composed songs using texts by recognized authors like Odysseus Elytis, Oscar Wilde or Pablo Neruda.

Angélique Ionatos's voice embodies a desire for movement shot through with a political message inspired by the vision of Greece under pressure.
She is committed to openness and accepting fears to better combat them particularly through the transmission of her native culture. This is a dark record which is nonetheless full of hope and transcended by the strength of its own convictions.
