Isidoros Papadamou was born in Thessaloniki in 1950. He has been making stringed instruments used in Greek music since 1983.

He graduated from the Department of Archaeology, School of Philosophy, of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 1973, and worked as a Greek teacher in secondary education for twelve years.

From a young age he dedicated himself to music, and more precisely to the study of the Greek “sound”.

In 1967 he and Argyris Bakirtzis created the main core of the band Chimerinoi Kolymvites (Winter Swimmers). Isidoros participated in the group's five first albums, as well as in the live performances of the group in Greece, France (Lyon, Marseille), and Australia. In 1997 he left the group in order to focus on his personal work as a composer. He has been writing music and lyrics since 1973, and from 1994 and until now has released five personal albums.

Since 1983 he has been involved in the art of instrument-making, as an extension of his musical interests. After 15 years of experimental/research work, he was able to apply his accumulated experience as a performer to the creation of instruments of very high standards. He currently makes all kinds of stringed musical instruments used in Greek music, most notably the three-stringed classical Greek bouzouki of which he is an exceptional performer. He also makes several other instruments of the lute family, such as lute, taboura, tzoura, baglama, mother of bouzouki, and folk guitars.
 He is in retirement since early 2015 but he will always be working on musical instruments and the study of sound behaviour into different species of wood.
