[The Night Shifters is] a fascinating ride. The voice feels a lot like Neil Gaiman. This is a huge compliment in my mind, and one not to be taken lightly.” - Melinda VanLone Reviews

Michael Levy on Greek TV!



Michael has received some well-due appreciation from Greek TV to ancient music for his devotion – click on the links and check it out:

OMG! I'm on national Greek TV!!!

At last! I finally have found a few snippets of 'international televised glory', appearing in an episode of the fascinating Greek language documentary series, "Beyond Borders", broadcast on the national Greek TV channel EPT3.

This particular episode was on recreating both renaissance and ancient musical instruments. From about 26 minutes into the documentary, this TV show wonderfully visually captures, in gorgeous HD, some of the magnificent recreations of the ancient Greek lyre, phorminx, arched harps and kithara of the 'Golden Age' of classical Greece; all lovingly handmade in modern Greece by the inspirational Luthieros master luthier, Anastasios Koumartzis.

From around 38 minutes into the show,several clips of the video shoots of my lyre-playing during my epic trip to  the Luthieros team in Thessaloniki back in October 2015 are featured, as well as some background music featuring tracks from my album  "A Well Tuned Lyre: The Just Intonation of Antiquity" (in addition to a few clips of my virtually viral,  original 'live' YouTube arrangement of the 3400 year old Hurrian Hymn!)

The documentary also includes fascinating details of the painstaking process of the hand-crafted construction of the Lutherios lyres (even although regrettably, literally the only Greek word I can actually recognise is 'Yamas''!)

This amazing TV documenary is able to be seen anywhere in the world, anytime, live-streaming from here
