Monsieur Doumani (Cyprus)

Acoustic trio presenting traditional music an innovative way

Coming from different musical backgrounds, but influenced by the Cypriot tradition at various levels, Monsieur Doumani compose Cypriot songs that draw inspiration from contemporary Cypriot society as well as from the shaky conditions of our era. The original identity of the project was determined by the adaptation of Cypriot traditional pieces, with a special contemporary color in sound and mood, forming a style distinctively their own.

Antonis Antoniou (tzouras), Angelos Ionas (guitar) and Demetris Yiasemides (trombone, flute) have gone through classical and jazz studios, so that their music can sometimes sound “less traditional“ , they all perform  their music the best way – their own.
