Michael Paouris is a Greek soloist at the bouzouki and guitar.
He has been performing with the instrument since he was 10 years old. His experience and well developed technique gave him a reputation between other well-known guitarists such as Stochelo Rosenberg, from the Rosenberg Trio, with who he has performed several times.

Al Di Meola calls him “The Phenomenom” because of his incredibly fast fingers.
With his jazzy style, Paouris, shows a different, more modern sound with the bouzouki, a traditional Greek instrument.
