Who are we?
Samanidis & Skjønhaug is Irina Cotseli, voice and piano, and Christian Hoel Skjønhaug, double bass -a musical dialogue between Greece and Norway, between popular, classical and improvised music. We are currently based in Mallorca, Spain, and since our beginning in 2017, we have released two albums and done more than 70 concerts, mostly in Mallorca, but also in Greece and Switzerland.
What do we need the money for?
Your donation will directly support the recording, production and cover design of our third album "The Sky above the Roof". The plan is to have 300 copies of the album ready by the end of October, and rewards will be given out in November and December.

The album we now want to bring into production and finally to you, consist of carefully chosen pieces from composers such as Samuel Barber, Benjamin Britten, Kurt Weill and Ralph Vaughan Williams, all arranged by us.
