Born on 18 March 1939 in Iraklio on the isle of Creta, Greece.

Born in Crete, a graduate of the Athens Conservatory where he studied music for 6 years, Yannis Markopoulos first came to Britain in 1967 to study modern music under Elizabeth Lancies.

His friendship with composers Mikis Theodorakis and Yannis Christou helped Yannis (in his early years) to overcome the technical difficulties in the materialization of his inspirations.

His work is well-known and respected in Greece, and he has composed music for plays and films as well as for his own record projects
