SOIL (2014)

"...I can think of few recent releases that have kept me as consistently engaged throughout "

(Jamie Renton, fRoots mag)

SOIL is Michalis Kouloumis' debut album, a project in which the artist re-explores the music that he grew up with, the traditional tunes from his homeland, Cyprus, offering us a unique and soulful aesthetic result.

"The artist ought to express his inner truth; both to himself and to the others. Through a lonely quest of self discovery he traces the unique elements that contitute his own personality and set him apart from everyone else; his personal experiences, his own language, his particular place of origin, his identity. "    

 

(M. Kouloumis)

EPHEMERA is a collection of original compositions that came to life when Giannis, Michalis and Michalis met in Cyprus and formed the Lingua Franca Ensemble. Ruven joined soon after.

 

Just as a photograph captures images, Ephemera uses music to frame emotions that are normally condemned to fleeting transience. From the flash of amusement in a carefree child, to moments of longing due to separation, to the stages one passes from grief to acceptance, Ephemera unveils the power of these elusive emotions in our lives; emotions that pass unnoticed in an instant, but can leave a lasting trace over our conscious choices.
