Ross Daly

Strings, Rabab

General Modal, Greek


Although of Irish descent, Ross Daly has been living the past 35 years on the island of Crete in Greece. He is a recognized expert on the island’s rich musical tradition. He is also well respected for his ability to bring artists of seemingly unrelated traditions together in collaborations of unique quality and depth. After many years of intensive training in a variety of musical traditions, Daly turned his attention to composition drawing heavily on all of the knowledge which he acquired during his long apprenticeships. Crete still provides a base for his personal and musical research as he continues travelling to perform his music. Today, Ross Daly continues performing whilst directing the Musical Workshop “Labyrinth” in the village of Houdetsi on Crete, which he founded in 1982.
