Stelios Petrakis was born in 1975 and grew up in Sitia, Crete. In 1983 he joined the Sitia School of Music, where he learned to play the lyra. He completed his “official” lyra studies in 1993.

For the past seven years, Stelios Petrakis has performed with the Cretan Quartet, a group that performs Cretan music and dance at some of the most prestigious festivals Worldwide (India, Malaysia, USA , Marocco, Switzerland, France, Belgium).

Stelios Petrakis has a luthierie workshop in Heraklion, where he makes musical instruments including various types of lyra, laouto, saz, etc., and a degree in Law from the Faculty of Law, School of Law, Athens University. He speaks English and (to a lesser degree) French and Turkish.
