Dimitri from... Constantinople?
Dimitri from Paris is actually from Istanbul. No he's not Turkish, he's Greek. Dimitri was born in Istanbul and his real name is Dimitrios Yerasimos.
Like most Greeks of Turkey they left the old Greek lands for a better life, especially since Turkey didn't always make it easy for some Greeks to remain.
Dimitrios grew up in France where his interest in music started at an early age.
As that interest grew and became fine tuned he became a DJ that started getting a lot of attention.
He got a few radio station DJ shows in the 90's that showed all of France what a talent he was. He was also the first person to do a House Music radio show in all of France which put him on the map as a DJ.
In the early to mid 90's he deejayed and recorded tracks for France's fashion greats and their runway shows like Hermès, Chanel, Lagerfeld and Yves Saint-Laurent.
Finally Sacrebleu was the debut album that launched him into the world beyond France. More albums followed and the rest is history. You can find out where he's playing next by logging into his web page at www.dimitrifromparis.com
Remember to always support our fellow Greeks.
