Dimitris Mahlis


Oudist, guitarist, and composer Dimitris Mahlis has become known in musical circles as an eclectic interpreter of many musical traditions. Having a thorough knowledge of both eastern and western musical theory, he has developed a playing style on several instruments which is both earthy yet intricate. As a composer, his pieces have set a standard in cross-cultural pollination.

Dimitris’s original compositions can be heard on several recordings with the duo Wahid, the Mahlis-Panos Project, and the duo Diaplus. He is also featured on the soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film Argo, and most recently on the critically acclaimed film The Angel.
