Following the success of the six previous years, Ethno Cyprus 2018, which was established in 2005, organises youth music camps dedicated to each participating country. The music camps aim at offering the opportunity to young people to discover the traditional music of each country participating in this year’s edition.
Forty young virtuosos of traditional instruments (aged between 15-30) from European countries, such as Cyprus, Croatia and Belgium, and Arab countries such as Lebanon and Jordan, will explore the roots of their common music identity, teaching each other local music traditions. The end result will be a unique concert repertoire that will creatively combine the music traditions of the Mediterranean countries under the artistic direction of Andreas Christodoulou, traditional music teacher at Limassol and Nicosia Music Schools.
Ethno Cyprus 2018 is organised within the framework of the Euro-Arab Youth Music Centre in collaboration with JM International, Arab Academy of Music, JM Croatia and the National Music Conservatory of Amman. It is funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture and the EU programme Erasmus+.
