In mid-20th-century Cyprus, weddings and religious festivals were filled with the sounds of fkiolarides/kemaneciler: the island's traditional music fiddlers. As the decades progressed and Cyprus's cultural landscape changed, this class of musicians slowly died out. The Cypriot Fiddler documentary traces the lives of traditional music fiddlers from both sides of the Cypriot divide for the very first time. To find out more info about the documentary project, you can visit The Cypriot Fiddler page.
The screening will take place in the Conference Room at the Home for Cooperation at 19:00. Following, an unforgetable music night will take place with the traditional music fiddlers. While they will be playing, the Home Cafe will serve two options to the guests in the evening:
- Ofto kleftiko (lamp) with potatoes and salad - 10EUR/30TL
- Vegetarian tavas (rice & vegetables) and salad - 10EUR/30TL
Dips (tahini,yogurt,spicy cheese,aubergine salad) will be available in the menu, as well.
Due to the limited space, reservation is needed for the food & music session. Pleasecontact us by April 5th!
For the screening, reservation is not necessary.
