A concert by four energetic and highly promising musicians who represent
modern Cypriot music production. Yiannis Koutis started as a soloist and
has found his own personal style with traceable influences from Arabic and
Byzantine chants. Alkis Agathokleous has a modern approach to playing the
ney – a Middle Eastern long flute, possibly one of the oldest instruments still in
use. Influenced by jazz and Sufi traditions, Agathokleous harmoniously interacts
with fellow musicians Nikolas Tryphonos and Rodos Panagiotou creating a
unique sound with their very particular rhythm. Original and traditional music
creates a colourful kaleidoscope showcasing the richness of Cypriot music
and the particular character of the Mediterranean music.
Yiannis Koutis: artistic director, oud, fretless guitar, vocals. Alkis Agathokleous:
ney. Nikolas Tryphonos: contrabass. Rodos Panagiotou: percussion instruments.
