“If the goal of Margaritis’ album is to soothe the listener, then it has done so with flying colours—the slow tempo and delicate playstyle found within each track eases the listener into a place of peace and tranquility. The most notable aspect of Margaritis’ playstyle is that slight pauses occur at the most spontaneous of times, giving the entire album an improvisational feel that allows for extensive replayability… Kimata achieves that which it sets out to do, and takes me away with its complex melodies and soulful composition. ”

“Guitarist and producer Konstantinos Margaritis’ Kimata is an explorative journey of superb classical guitar and jazz music. A solid artistic statement, Margaritis combines his own unique compositions with thoughtful and original arrangements of jazz standards. Near perfect technique and a quintessential Mediterranean essence influenced by his native, Greece make for a dreamy and almost mystical listening experience from start to finish. ”
— D. Ondaro, guitarist
