It is with deep grief that the Musical Workshop Labyrinth announces the passing of our beloved oud teacher Giorgos Mavromanolakis.

His untimely death leaves a huge empty space in the hearts of all of us here which we can never expect to replenish. He was a very gentle and generous soul who was much loved by all of his students as well as by all of his colleagues and by music lovers wherever he went. We extend our deepest condolences to his family and many friends.
