Members of the bicommunal Cypriot Songs Association found an ingenious way to perform together again after a long hiatus due to the pandemic restrictions.

The group, Σύνδεσμος Κυπριακού Τραγουδιού/Kıbrıs Havaları Derneği, arranged to gather on either side of the Venetian walls in Nicosia near Paphos Gate and perform again together. Turkish Cypriots stood on top of the wall, and the Greek Cypriots underneath.

Physical contact between the two communities has been almost impossible since the coronavirus outbreak a year ago when restrictions were imposed on crossings.
