Domenico is a multi-organist musician and a multilingual translator from Metaxourgeio area of Athens. With the help of a very strong and dedicated community, he founded Agia Fanfara, The Holy Fanfara; a Balkan brass band formed by 20 people who had absolutely no idea how to play their respective instruments (although there are some musicians among them). Within 2 years, their passion for Balkan music made Agia Fanfara finally sound like a real band, and you can see that on the face of everyone who follows her lead (it is a she!).
Throughout his extensive music experience in Greece and Germany, as well as his studies at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Domenico has always practiced cultural projects with a social character and self-organized structures. Constant establishment of strong binding relations between collaborators from every corner of the world has been his primary goal. Domenico is a persistent worker for this solidarity network. In 2018, Domenico saw the START Fellowship Program as a possibility to enhance his project management skills in social culture; skills that help open up his project to children and allow Agia Fanfare to be a tool for providing access to music. Because music is life and life is joy.
