The band uses musical instruments like lyra, varvitos, krotala, pandoura and double flute made by the famous Greek master Nicholas Brass to recreat an Ancient Greek style music that could be categorized as ethereal, neoclassical, neofolk or gothic.
They were formed in 1994 by Spyros Giasafakis and Evi Stergiou and released their first album through the French label Prikosnovenie.
The band is composed on stage by 3 singing female nymphs and 3 musicians, recreating the atmosphere of a Greek tribe singing Orphic and Homeric hymns and Sappho’s poems for Zeus or Hekate.
