Let the guitars take you away

The sound of a group of guitars will take us to Spain, Latin America, Bulgaria and Greece on Friday as melodies are created without frontiers.

These travelling melodies will be brought to life at the hands of the Acordes Guitar Ensemble, a guitar orchestra of eight to 12 people, based in Cyprus.

During the event, within the framework of the World Music Series organised by the Rialto theatre, the ensemble will present musical works that have been written especially for guitar ensembles, as well as instrumental arrangements from famous musical works.

After a successful career in Cyprus and abroad, the ensemble is sure to give a multicultural feel with some flamenco sounds, La Bamba rhythms and some romantic Greek melodies.

Guitarist Zoe Paisanou is the inspiration, mentor and facilitator of the Acordes Guitar Ensemble, that will be joined on Friday by Despoina Psatha on vocals and Marios Markou on the clarinet.

Melodies Without Frontiers
Performance by the Acordes Guitar Ensemble. May 27. Rialto theatre, Limassol. 8.30pm. €10/7. Tel: 77-777745
