EPHEMERA

 

 

26 Aug 2017 @ Hani tou Ibrahim, Pafos (CY)

PAFOS 2017 European Capital of Culture

 

Lingua Franca Ensemble will appear on the Travelling Stage in the summer of 2017 in Pafos. The members of the ensemble carry with them their geographical and musical experiences on a musical quest, during which the traditions of the Eastern Mediterranean meet and create a visual landscape through music. The fresh sound of the tarhu – a fiddle developed only ten years ago – mixes with the intense and brilliant sound of the violin creating a unique blend. The oud with its emotional and yet dynamic character connects perfectly to the strong character of the percussion instruments lead and supported by amazing vocals. The Lingua Franca Ensemble composes and performs music with respect to the character of local tradition and music. With expressive intensity and joyful drive they lead the audience on an emotional and euphoric journey.

Michalis Cholevas: tarhu, yayli tambur, ney
