A true global ambassador for peace, good will and understanding, Yanni is one of the most recognizable composer/performers of our time. He is, without a doubt, a musical phenomenon — a rare artist whose music defies borders and boundaries and speaks to people of all races and all nations. With more than 40 platinum and gold albums and sales totaling over 25 million copies to his credit, the artist has amazed millions on every continent with his live shows, including at the Acropolis in Greece, the Taj Mahal in India, the Forbidden City in China and Royal Albert Hall in England.
