Music festival in Nicosia brings communities together
Today, the “Cultural Movement” and the bi-communal group "Cyprus One Homeland, All Together" held a musical event at Faneromeni Square in Nicosia. Niyal Ozturk and Freideriki Tombazou, the Cypriot performers, joined their bands and sang bilingual songs known both to Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, who had the opportunity to sing and dance together.
The title given to the events “Μουσικό/Müzık panayιrι” (Bi-communal Music Festival) consists an integral piece of the activity. The bilingual term Μουσικό/Müzık emphasizes the character of the event, and at the same time, the word panayιrι shows the common identity and culture of the two communities. The word Panayιrι is until today is strongly connected with the cultural heritage of both communities.
The festival is supported by UNFICYP and aims to bring the communities together with common songs from both languages. The next event will take place at Lefke Hanı, on 11 December at 12h00 noon.
