Peter Douskalis Releases His Latest EP, Culture Crisis

December 2, 2019

NEW YORK – Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season, guitarist Peter Douskalis released his latest EP, Culture Crisis, for the music lovers on your list. Douskalis spoke with The National Herald about his original compositions for the instrumental rock guitar EP which is now available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, and CDbaby.

“Culture Crisis is an EP that is guitar featured music that harmonically and melodically weaves through the experience of being raised in an outside culture of a host nation,” Douskalis told TNH. “Sounds of rock, metal, indie, and jazz blend with hints of harmonic elements of Eastern European, Greek and Cypriot influences.”

Those familiar with the talented Douskalis’ work will appreciate the soulful blend of influences in his original compositions.

Douskalis, whose father is from Piraeus and mother is from Cyprus, is a musician, arranger, and educator. He is a substitute guitarist at the Broadway shows Dear Evan Hansen and School of Rock and Off-Broadway at Desperate Measures. He has arranged music education materials for Hal Leonard Publications and has given TEDx Talks about multicultural music education. Douskalis performs Greek music with Pericles Kanaris and Synolon, Armenian music with Hooshere, and Cypriot music with Sounds of Cyprus. His solo jazz guitar CD The Dance of the Sea received national and international acclaim in Just Jazz Guitar Magazine, Los Angeles Jazz Scene, Jazz Journal (UK), and Cadence Magazine. He can be seen performing regularly around New York City.
