Monsieur Doumani

Dynamic Cypriot music with a twist

Fri 5 June, 8pm

Songlines Encounters with Smaller Rooms and More Music present

Monsieur Doumani

With support from The Balkanics

Monsieur Doumani are a dynamic trio playing original and traditional Cypriot music with a twist. Featuring Antonis Antoniou on tzouras (small bouzouki), Angelos Ionas on guitar and Demetris Yiasemides on winds, they combine impressive musicianship with humour and panache. 2013’s album Grippy Grappa was a Songlines favourite and their new album Sikoses arrives in the spring.


With their unique blend of sizzling Eastern European music The Balkanics deliver a big-band seven-piece sound ranging from driving dance rhythms to dreamy interludes. Expect banging Balkan and Klezmer tunes with an unusual twist that reflects the band members' diverse backgrounds in traditional folk, rock, dance and classical music.

This concert is part of Songlines Encounters Festival On Tour 2015. Songlines Encounters Festival is co-curated by Songlines magazine and Ikon Arts Management.
