The father of bouzouki, a real musical genius, emulated but not matched by many bouzouki players the world around.

Many budding bouzouki players laboured over his FLOGA masterpiece, and many other fast sounds.
Avraamakis is by far my most popular bouzouki player right now. Alas, although I have my original Bouzouki and Mbaglama I hardly play now,.
