There are at least two artists with this name: 1) In 1998 vocalist Vassili and guitarist Eric Jaeger joined musical forces to create a new sound in contemporary world music and the band Children of the Revolution was born. They experimented for six months, blending music from their Greek and flamenco roots with American rock influences. After meeting Barcelona-born flamenco dancer/guitarist/vocalist Encarnación and belly dancer/vocalist Amelia, they began to perform in Seattle clubs. Over time, they were joined by some of Seattle's most talented multi-ethnic singers, dancers and musicians including a violinist whose high-energy stage antics rival Pete Townshend, the foremost Middle Eastern and Latin percussionists in the region and a Venezuelan folk/punk singer who's gritty vocal style and stage presence brings to mind Janice Joplin. The show that evolved is a non-stop rollercoaster, weaving effortlessly through rock, flamenco, ska, Greek, Turkish, salsa, R & B, Middle-Eastern and even hip-hop with guest artists like Sir Mix-A lot, Chris DeGarmo, Reggie Watts and Johnnie Kalsi from AfroCelt Sound System. Whether playing rock or flamenco, the group's purpose is the same; to unify its performers andaudience alike, with a love of life, music, dance and expression regardless of race, age, religion, gender or political affiliations. They have packed a broad spectrum of Northwest venues ranging from Meany Hall, Benaroya Hall, Bumbershoot, Folklife festival (performing for over 6,000 people) and the Paramount theatre. They have toured regionally through the Northwest and Canada and performed for over 30,000 people in Puli, Taiwan. COTR is featured on Putumayo's newest release "Greece, a Musical Odyssey." They are the only US group featured on this compilation with such world music superstars like George Dalares and Glykeria. The group has performed live on a countless radio and TV stations and theirtwo-hour concert video has been shown on numerous PBS stations across the country. With the release of their new CD "Liberation" and ever growing support of their concert DVD "The World on One Stage" from PBS, they are poised to take their message of unity through music to the whole world. 2) Swedish hardcore band.
