For being all instrumental, Pavlo's Mediterranean music speaks for itself.

In his 9th album,"Six String Blvd" Pavlo incorporates the world's most exotic instruments into his classic
Mediterranean sound. Influenced by his travels, you will be captured by the Chinese Ehru; the Portuguese
Guitarra; the Arabic Flute; the Indian Sitar and of course the Greek Bouzouki.

Pavlo has come full circle since he introduced his Mediterranean brand in 1998, once again recording an
All-Instrumental album. Complete with all brand new compositions, this album highlights Pavlo's unmatched
ability to melodically unite world instruments into his sound seamlessly, all the while staying true to his distinct
Mediterranean guitar signature.

It has never been more convincing, Pavlo is a TRUE WORLD artist, and has become famous for bringing every
audience to their feet.

Pavlo continues to tour worldwide performing over 150 shows per year and is still driven by his father's famous
words:

"Have the courage to do what you love, and the drive to do it well."
