YANNI

As a true global ambassador for peace, compassion, and understanding, Yanni is one of the most recognizable composers and performers of our time. He is a musical phenomenon—a rare artist whose music transcends geographical borders and touches people of all races and nations.

Yanni has accumulated more than 40 platinum and gold albums, with international sales totaling over 25 million copies, including the 1997 double-platinum Tribute album, which sold more than a million copies within six weeks of its release, and 1994’s Live at the Acropolis, which has sold more than 7.5 million copies worldwide (five million in North America). He has also earned Grammy nominations for his 1992 album Dare to Dream, and the 1993 follow-up, In My Time.

The epic Tribute DVD, released in 1997 to commemorate Yanni's historic live performances at the Taj Mahal in India and China's Forbidden City, debuted at #2 on the Music Video charts and earned double-platinum status. Live At The Acropolis has reached platinum an incredible six-times, the second-best music video of all time (selling more than 12 million copies globally). His concerts have been broadcasted on television in more than 40 countries with upwards of 2 billion people tuning in to experience his TV specials.

For over two decades, Yanni has been one of the top global touring acts in the world entertaining over five million people. Several of his North American tours finished in the Top 10 concert tours of the year, as ranked by Performance Magazine and Pollstar. He has sold out an incredible 10 consecutive shows at the historic Radio City Music Hall in New York, opened the Burj Kahlifa in Dubai, and performed inside the Kremlin in Russia.

The universal appeal of his music has translated well as a soundtrack for major sporting events and commercial placement. Yanni’s song, “Aria,” was composed for an award winning British Airways commercial which still remains the most successful and longest running commercial of all time. Since 1988, his music has provided a dramatic backdrop for such iconic sporting events as the Olympic Games, the Super Bowl, Tour De France, and the PGA Golf Championships.

Yanni has continued to tour extensively throughout the world, performing sold-out concerts in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North America and South America. His notoriety and success has allowed Yanni to engage in the many humanitarian efforts that he feels so passionately about. He continues to support children, music and education in the countries he visits. He has become a spokesperson for NASA and has entered into a collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund, aimed at raising awareness for panda conservation.
