Klampanis's latest album, “Chroma,” released by Motema records, was named the best live album of 2017 at the Independent Music Awards, while the artist has appeared at major venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center in Washington, and has performed at the internationally acclaimed Jazzahead Festival in Bremen, the XJazz Festival in Berlin, the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam and the Palatia Jazz Festival in Deidesheim, Germany.
