his majesty the king of spain
Ηis Majesty The King Of Spain is the project of the young song-maker Nektarios Kouvaras. The almost obsessive focus on the first listen, the intense use of the element of repetition and the innate aversion to anything cynical, act as an alibi for the classification of compositions in the broader category of pop, despite the frequent incorporation of blues and folk elements.
Initially as a (semi) acoustic trio and later as a six-piece band, His Majesty The King Of Spain have performed at a large number of venues (Gagarin, Stavros Tou Notou, Kittaro, Rodeo, Ianos, Stage-Larisa, Akti Dimeon-Patras , European Music Day etc.) and have opened for artists such as Jonathan Richman, Marc Almond and The Radio Dept.
