Oditiv
Oditiv was created in the summer of 2015 in Thessaloniki by Anna Papaikonomou, Andreas Kapetanakis and Vassilis Georgakopoulos. The goal was to create a band that would cover well-known songs in pop, rock, funk and rock n roll style in the acoustic prism of the band. With beautiful orchestrations and with the aim of deconstructing the original performances, Oditiv manages to create fun appearances with their varied repertoire.
