This year, 35 young virtuosos of traditional instruments from European (Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus) and Arab countries (Jordan, Lebanon), met to explore their common cultural identity. During very challenging times in the Mediterranean region, programs like “Ethno Cyprus” aim to promote Cyprus as a cultural and educational center of the area, by bringing together young people form different countries, who will engage in a multicultural dialect. Cultural activities contribute to economic growth and social cohesion, so “Ethno Cyprus” aspires to support the creativity and mobility of young musicians, who will become ambassadors of positive changes in their communities. Teaching each other for 10 days through music workshops, they will create a concert program combining creatively the music sounds of the Mediterranean. The artistic leader was Mr. Andreas Christodoulou.
The final concert was held on July 10h at 21:00 at Heroes Square, Limassol in collaboration with Rialto Theatre and will mark the beginning of Cyprus Rialto World Music Festival.”
