Alexandros Tzouganakis was born in Chania, Crete.

At the age of seven he settled in Athens with his family. Since then, Crete has always been on his mind and has guided him.

Alexandros grew up in a musical family, as his father is Michail Tzouganakis.

The sounds of the lute, the sazi, the outi, the contrabass, the lyre and other musical instruments which he listened to his father Michail playing, attracted his interest and impacted on his approach to music.

The sounds and melodies of Crete became a part of his everyday life. At the age of four he started to become more intrigued by these musical instruments. His favourite game had by then become the sound of lute.

At the age of seven, the day came when he was given his first lute and since then he has never put it down. He began to develop his musical identity based on the originality of his family’s musical heritage.

At the age of ten, at his father’s concert, he performed in public for the first time, playing percussion. Since the age of 15 he has played in concerts with his father in Greece and abroad.

A little later, alongside his great love, music, he began his studies in Civil Engineering at the University of Derby.

He sings in his own style, closely following the Greek music scene and influenced by the unique musical heritage of Crete. He sings, composes and writes his own songs.

In 2013 he published his first song with both music and lyrics entitled, “Dream”.
