Andria Antoniou, is a London-based vocalist of jazz, Latin music and Greek Retro music (tango, waltzes, serenades of 30’s-50’s). Born in a musical family in the small island of Cyprus, Andria started to develop a strong interest and enthusiasm in the performing arts since she was a little girl. Her immersion into different styles of music from an early age and her bilingual upbringing have led her to what she is as a performer; an amalgam of musics from different parts of the world expressed in different languages.
Andria has performed in London, Athens, Cyprus, Colombia and Cuba. Some of the most notable recent collaborations she had was with the Greek composer George Hatzinasios, the band ‘Classico Latino’, the award-winning Cuban violinist Omar Puente, the Brazilian musician Mario Bakuna, the Argentinian musician Roman Gomez, and the West End Musical Director, Greg Arrowsmith. Having had the opportunity to perform and collaborate with these musicians has allowed Andria to develop her own sound - a luminous, warm, and versatile voice - which draws together elements of jazz, Latin and Greek retro music.
Andria has appeared at Cambridge Music Festival (UK), St’ James Church (UK), the Vortex (UK), the Forge (UK), Sarah’s Jazz Club (CY), Gialino Theatro (GR), Phoenix Artist Club (UK), Teatro Colon de Bogota (CO), amongst others. Aside from performing, she teaches singing and piano in London and has led workshops in London and Cyprus.
Andria has recently released her first debut album with Roman Gomez entitled ‘Encuentro’. The official London launch took place this October 2019. She also features as a guest on Classico Latino's new album 'Havana Classics' recorded in the summer of 2018 at Egrem Studios in Cuba along with award-winning violinist Omar Puente. Their album was also released this October.
