A journey through world music

The courtyard of the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation will once again give us the chance to enjoy an open-air concert, while giving artists a stage on which to showcase their talent.

On Wednesday the foundation will host its second event of the Faneronemi Festival 18. After opening with a music event, A Sea of Songs on Thursday, the festival is now ready to rock our summer. This second event is the concert Songs and Tunes of a Treasured World.

The concert will be led by Cypriot songwriter and singer Vakia Stavrou, who has appeared in international discography and prestigious festivals abroad. Stavrou will be accompanied by pianist and orchestrator Marios Takoushis and bassist Gabriel Karapatakis. The three musicians will combine their musical talents with creative imagination, improvisation, a new perspective and a renewed approach to favourite songs from several corners of the world in French, Spanish, Portuguese, English, Italian and Greek – always with a romantic mood infused by potent emotions.

Expect to hear songs that were made famous by Edith Piaf, Astor Piazzola, Manos Chatzidakis, Attik, Antonio Carlos Jobim and more. Stavrou will also present two compositions from her latest album Alasia, which was recorded and released in France early last year.

Songs and Tunes of a Treasured World
Concert as part of the third Faneromeni 18 Festival. June 14. Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, Nicosia. 9pm. Free. Tel: 22-128157
