Christos found his personal voice when he established 'Manhattan Vibes’, a band that has appeared at numerous New York's cutting edge venues including the Blue Note, the Jazz Standard, Smoke Jazz Club and Dizzy's Club Coca Cola. Highlights of his career include performances with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and Wynton Marsalis; a US tour with the Charles Mingus ‘Epitaph' Band featuring bassist Christian McBride and conductor Gunther Schuller; a recording with the Harmony Ensemble of NY of Henry Mancini’s 'Peter Gunn' featuring Lew Soloff, Ronnie Cuber and Victor Lewis; recordings with vocalist Chaka Khan; and a duo performance at Carnegie Hall with pianist Sergio Salvatore.

For several years, Christos has been a guest faculty member at the 'Zeltsman Marimba Festival', which takes place every summer in different parts of the world. He also has an Artist Residency at the 'Music Village' in Greece. His original works for mallets are published from MRL MUSIC and are being played in concerts around the world. Currently, he is working on the release of his latest trio recording, 'Near & Dear' featuring Mike Pope on bass and Maurizio Zottarelli on drums.
