Albert Panagiotopoulos is a well known Athens based drummer with musical studies in the US ("The Drummers Collective" of New York) and a remarkable career as a session musician with top Greek artists (Yiannis Spanos, Yiorgos Hadjinassios-Michalis Hadjiyiannis, Marios Frangoulis, Lakis Papadopoulos, C-real, among others) with Rock and Jazz groups too, playing in top venues of the country (Half note, Lycabettus theater, etc). He has also taught modern drumming techniques in various music schools in the greater Athens area (N. Touliato`s “Music Praxis” school, Municipal conservatories, Glyfada odeon and in private). His book entitled “Complete Drum Method” was published in 2001 by F. Nakas, the most prestigious music publishing company in Greece and it has made a hit.

Albert has created two excellent albums called: “Visionary World” and “Hyperfly”, as a composer and an arranger. These particular works contain glimpses of the Mediterranean, the Middle Eastern culture, the Balkans, the Greek folk music, the Blues and the Afro Cuban heritage. All these in a fresh Jazz - Rock - New Age style. It's a musical panorama, an amazing journey through many parts of the globe. The cd`s are now distributed by the Greek music composers union (emse). The musicians appearing on the albums are also top notch (V. Rakopoulos, A. Ladopoulos, G. Kiourtsoglou, M. Loutas, A. Orfanos, J. Zevgolis, M. Theodosakis and more) and have contributed to amalgamate the numerous musical currents into a unified whole. The resulting music is a chant for global peace and self development. Radio producers, newspaper and magazine columnists have welcome these works on many articles and interviews. Here are some critics in top music magazins in Greece:
