A multiple Grammy Award nominee, Yanni is truly a global artist and has sold out tour dates around the world and performed for millions of people. His primarily instrumental works cross all barriers; without lyrics, the music is accessible to all listeners regardless of age, race, language or culture.

Performing in Egypt at the Great Pyramids for the first time was an incredible honor for the artist, who said, “It has long been a dream of mine to perform at the Great Pyramids of Egypt, or as I like to call it, ‘The Heart of Civilization!’ I am really grateful that this dream has now been fulfilled. During my visit and performances in Egypt I experienced and fell in love with the beautiful culture, joyous and welcoming spirit, warmth and overwhelming generosity of its people. This was a once-in-a-lifetime, unforgettable event and it has been immortalized in a stunning 4K video production with the best 5.1 surround audio that I have ever made in my life. It will forever be etched in my mind and in my heart.”

Yanni – accompanied by his 15-member international orchestra is currently in the midst of a major North American tour in support of his new album Sensuous Chill, his 15th album to debut at No.1 on Billboard’s New Age chart.
