From a very young age, Γιώργος Ζαμπέτας showed a great interest for music: as he was helping his father in his barber shop, he secretly played his first melodies on a bouzouki. Anything that was producing sound seemed exciting to him and helped him in his compositions, as he said in his biography not long before he died.

In 1932 at the age of 7 he won his first prize, as a student of the first grade, playing his first song in a school competition. He was self-taught and is considered one of the most important laika/bouzouki composers and players to this day. Read more on Last.fm.
