panagiotis haramis

Born in Athens, Greece.

His first contact with music was at the age of 10, when he was fooling around with a guitar and a keyboard his father had bought for him, but it was at the age of 13 when he took the music more serious and he started to take lessons at a music school.

The funny thing was that he couldn’t decide what instrument he wanted to play. His music’s school director convinced him to pick up the bass because there was no other student at the music school learning bass.

So Panagiotis said “OK. I’ll do it”.

From 1990 to 1996 he took lessons with a well known guitarist in Greece, but he wanted more, so he decided to start piano lessons with the same teacher for two more years.

He started to play bass with local bands at the age of 14.

In 1995 he met Takis Intas which turned to be his best friend in life and music.

In 1998 he finally met another great person, friend and musician… Achilleas Diamantis.

Achilleas, Takis and Panagiotis finally got together and started making music. The name of the band is CONFUSION and until now they have released three CD’s, CONFUSION, GENESIS and ENTER ALONE.
