Stelios is a guitarist and composer based in London. He has performed in the UK and his native Greece as well as in Hungary and Slovakia. Stelios has written music for a wide range of mediums including short films, contemporary dance performances and documentaries.

In 2011, his piece 'A Moment' was selected as the official theme of the prestigious Athens Video Dance Project festival. In 2013 he showcased 'Timelapse', a composition for one dancer and one musician, at the King's Place (London) as part of festival Musichoreography: Duets for Dancers and Instrumentalists. 'Meteora', his most recent composition for contemporary dance, was showcased in Laban Bonnie Bird Theatre (Greenwich) in 2013 and Robin Howard Theatre (The Place, London) as part of the Resolution! 2014 season.

As a performer, Stelios's repertoire and outlook is a reflection of his dual identity as both guitarist and composer. He is currently performing a varied and wide ranging programme including original compositions, world music as well as classical guitar repertoire mainly from the Baroque and 20th century period. Some of his recent performances include London venues such as King's Place, Heath Street Baptist church, National Maritime Museum and St Sepulchre church.
