In September 2006, theatrologist Ismini Sakelaropoulou decided to make a personal effort on the metal, mainstream and atmospheric sound paths, by founding the band ISMINI. Producer and main composer of this project is Vangelis Yalamas.
The line-up of the band is the following;
Ismini Sakelaropoulou - Vocals
Dionisis Hahabis - Drums
George Barbatsis - Guitars
Yannis Marizas - Guitars
Dimitris Bassos - Bass
Pantelis Kalogiros - Keys
Ismini was born and raised in Patra, Greece. She has cooperated on numerous theatrical plays.
She has cooperated with one of the most famous and accomplished Greek composers, Mimis Plessas, for a musical play! She has also appeared live with the band FADED HOPES in quite a few venues all around Patra and Athens.
ISMINI's debut album, under the name of "Black Swan", is finished and we are looking for a label.
The artwork and photography have been created by Natalie Shau, who has worked for various bands like LACUNA COIL etc, and Seth, who is one of the “most wanted” artists of the industry worldwide, having worked with bands such as CALIBAN, PARADISE LOST e.t.c.
