Life & Style

A minutes with Petros Solomou, singer, music teacher and member of male quartet Avanti4

Where do you live?
In Nicosia, alone

Best childhood memory?
Summer camp in Greece!

Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish?
1900 art café in Larnaca, although I must admit my favorite dish is my mother’s koupepia!

What food would you really turn your nose up to?
I never managed to eat snails! French cuisine or not , je deteste les escargots!

What did you have for breakfast?
As always: oat, honey, coffee with milk

Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day out?
Definitely a night person. Beer night with good friends would be my favourite!

Best book ever read?
Dictionary of the Khazars by Serbian writer Milorand Pavic. I discover new things every time I read it!

Favourite film of all time?
Probably the Zeitgeist documentary trilogy by Peter Joseph. Very… educating!

Best holiday ever taken? What’s your dream trip?
Germany, summer 2013… with a very special person! Dream trip? Well, as Sinatra once put it: “I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps!”

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Two entirely different music records: Damien Rice – O and Greek composer Thanasis Papakontsantinou – Agripnia (Insomnia)

What is always in your fridge?
Beer!

Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
Definitely rural retreat, probably a peaceful place in the mountain region of Limassol. Preferably with a nice garden and mountain view. I love the countryside!

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Well, I really miss my grandpa, so he would be the one.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would pray for an extension!

What is your greatest fear?
That the world IS going to end someday and mankind will be entirely responsible!

Tell me a joke…
Here is a clever slogan I ran across the other day: “DO IT TODAY! It might be illegal tomorrow!”

Avanti4 will be performing on Makarios Avenue on Saturday as part of the Christmas celebrations
