Jannis Karis and Kostas Tsapakidis have been playing music together for more than forty years. They have performed on several performing stages and festivals in Germany, France, Hungary, Czech Republic, Greece, Austria, Switzerland and Turkey.

In the year 1990 they invited the grandseigneur of Rembetiko, Michalis Genitsaris, to Germany. Together they sucessfully played ten concerts, one of them in the “Alte Oper” in Frankfurt. During these concerts the live record „Saltadoros“ was produced.

After returning, they recorded their LP „Salto orienntale“ as „Prosechos“ in collaboration with Stefan Hantel alias Shantel, who was a member of the group at that time.
