Thursday Lives session: Windcraft & Drumblebeats
•20:30 pm -23:00 pm
For the show at the Home for Cooperation, the winds of the Windcraft Band will be joined by the drums of the Drumble Beats for the first time, where they will perform some funky tunes together. This collaboration will be carried on during their upcoming summer performances.
Drumble beats, four students of the Drum and Movement Center Tamassos play as an ensemble under the guidance of German drummer Roger Heinrich. The fusion of marching, African and Latin beats and covers of Rock and Pop songs has already led the young musicians to performances in place as far afield as Germany. Employing electronic instruments and similar creations, odd bits and pans, pots and a couple of drums...they create a blend of familiar sounds twisted into fresh experiences infused with tremendous energy... a joyful, experimental and fresh mix that leaves no foot unmoved!
Windcraft band, twenty enthusiastic musicians from around the world met in 2013 in Nicosia and formed the band. This multicultural wind band celebrates their passion for music and fills up the city and village squares with their powerful brass sound. Funky and latin grooves make space to elegant swing pieces, rock sounds to traditional Greek and Balkan tunes, and everything blends to create a magical atmosphere, the way it always happens when people join their breaths and voices…
