Yiannis Koutis: artistic director, oud, fretless guitar, vocals
Alkis Agathokleous: ney
Nikolas Tryphonos: contrabass
Rodos Panagiotou: percussion instruments.

Cypriot Kaleidoscope is part of a series of events which celebrate the musical traditions of the Eastern Mediterranean and its neighbouring countries, as well as their impact on contemporary music.

Mediterranean Musical Traditions is a three-day event comprising of five concerts by musicians from Greece, Northern Italy, Israel and Spain.
Curated by: Kyriakos Kalaitzides.
