Hello,
Dimitris Rapakousios makes tailor-made high quality ouds. He makes beautiful arabic ouds also. He sells some old antique ouds (Manol etc)

Apart from Dimitri, most makers are not specialised in ouds, but in bouzouki

This is a shop that sells mostly ouds made by Dimitri
Check for opening hours , schedule etc before you go

By the way if you want we can play together if you come in Athens (I will not be in athens during the Easter holidays though)

Buongiorno, Daniele,

I just pulled this info off the internet (greece.com), and I haven't been in Athens for a decade, I don't now how up-to-date the info is. When I was there, I got great CDs from Metropolis, including from the one in the Athens airport. They had Nikos Saragoudas' "Iones"!

All the best,
John

Ok lads!
I made the ticket. I will be in Athens from April 6th to 10th.
I would like to meet any oud (or nay, qanun, percussions) player from Athens, and get any useful information about intresting concerts, shops and luthiers!
