(Part of Louvana Agency) Freedom Candlemaker is a direct translation of Cypriot artist, Lefteris Moumtzis’ name into English. The musician has released various acclaimed albums in the last 10 years as Lefteris Moumtzis and J.Kriste, Master of Disguise. His album, ‘Beaming Light’ (February 2019, Inner Ear Records) marks a departure from his previous output both sonically and symbolically: it is a radiant album that contrasts his earlier work. The artist’s sound centres around bright dream pop and driving rhythms with vibrant synth and guitar melodies.

Freedom Candlemaker live is a pulsating five-piece, consisting of four of the top players from the Athens music scene (Σtella, Marina Satti, Pavlos Pavlidis, The Cave Children, Daphne & The Fuzz). Together they delve into Moumtzis' songs and deliver a meticulously crafted, colourful sound with conviction and energy. The band fuse together, stretching the material's potential with dreamy improvisations and continuous band interplay.
