Helen Kontos

Helen Kontos is from Netherlands but has been living in and near Thessaloniki since 1986. She is a music manager and booking agent. After some (failed) attempts to bring world music to Greece in 1993 she started a collaboration with the well-known singer Savina Yannatou in 1994, promoting her internationally, which resulted in an international career for the singer and her accompanying band Primavera en Salonico with 9 albums (of which the last four on the legendary label ECM Records) and with concerts all over the world until today. Besides the management of Savina Yannatou, she is now booking tours for some 10 – 14 other international artists and projects, mostly jazz and projects “between genres”, and mostly European tours.
