D-Version welcomes Lara Eidi
14-06-2013

Initially an English Literature student at Deree College Greece, and then a Film Student at St. Andrews Scotland, Lara Eidi always seemed to turn to music for all the answers, either jamming on the front garden at Deree, or singing in some student dorm and pub in Scotland. After returning to Greece in 2010, she decided so to speak to risk it all and take the road less travelled.
Making a small name for herself as a lead back up and jazz vocalist, (Karen Solomon, JD Walter) and lending her harmony, guitar and piano skills to various established musicians in Athens, (Leon) she soon realized that the missing piece was writing her own material. She founded The Lara Collective with established cellist Stavros Pargino, whose musical talent and creativity rendered the music both atmospheric and in turn completed their original piano-voice arrangement. And there, music, text, culminated in the creation of her first EP, “Little People”, released on itunes in October 2012.
They introduced their work around Athens, (Vrysaki, Fringe Festival), and the EP was met with positive reviews, such as music journalist Maria Markouli’s note: ‘Artfully embroidered compositions, resonant with crystal vocals in her own distinctly unique voice. She is the new blood of cosmopolitan folk' (Tanea.gr).
The turning point, however, came about when the musical pair were accepted to represent Greece at the renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Needless to say, a lifelong dream was realized and this summer, prior to the festival Lara and Stavros will be performing in Beirut, Lebanon (Radio Beirut, Fete de La Musique).
