Throughout history, Cyprus has been variously described as ‘the island of love’, ‘the birthplace of Aphrodite’, ‘the blessed isle’, ‘the land of lemon and olive trees’, among many other things. But in the past half century, Cyprus has also been known as a land of pain and sorrow; an island of division and loss.

On this ‘Musical Journey to Cyprus’, Nicoletta Demetriou (voice), Nikitas Tampakis (viola), and Roger Mgrdichian (oud) explore this varied identity, as expressed through the island’s music and song. Join these three accomplished musicians on an imaginary journey to Cyprus, as they sing about the joys and intricacies of love, the pain and sorrow of loss, and the hope for better days to come.
