What in the world does the name Machaira (ma-kai-ru) mean you ask?
Well, Machaira in Greek actually means Sword! For Machaira, it is all about pure joy and bringing people together. Machaira is a 12-piece band, but not just any band! Machaira represents a broad range of diversity, transposing into a musical stew!
