George Tsiatsoulis was born in Athens in 1975. He has been playing the accordion since the age of eight. He started studying classical music. At the same time, he showed intense interest both in jazz and greek folk music tradition, as well as in musical idioms of other countries that contain the element of improvisation.
In 2006 he created the GoJam Group, a quartet of greek jazz music, which was the main place of expression of his artistic concerns. In 2012 he became a member of Gadjo Dilo, with whom he played in Greece and abroad until 2019. From 2020 he officially became a member of the band Manouche Drome, which is active in the field of gupsy jazz, playing rhythm guitar.
