Christos Kaliontzidis was born in Veria, Imathia Greece in 1993 and was raised in Thessaloniki. He comes from a family with a rich musical background. His father  Michalis, who is considered to be one of the most important masters of the Pontic lyra in Greece, immersed him into both the traditional Greek and Pontian music from a very young age. Christos has been playing the Pontic lyra since he was six and at the age of twelve  he started making his first public appearances playing and singing Pontian music at social events (weddings, christenings, traditional festivals, name days, etc.) and in concerts with choirs and large orchestras throughout Greece, either with his father or alone.
