This year’s Windcraft Music Fest will be more airy than ever, with bands combining different music traditions of the world and the winds giving the lead to a lively musical celebration.
What: Windcraft Music Fest 4
When: Saturday, 12 August
Where: To Chani tou Stavrinou, Katydata.
Returning to the picturesque village of Katydata for its fourth edition, Windcraft Music Fest (Youth Award 2016, Category Culture) presents a musical weekend of concerts, workshops, screenings and parallel activities.
As usual wind instruments will be the stars in the line-up, which will feature local and international artists and bands showcasing their original music projects, which are influenced by music traditions of the world. The festival will take us from European jazz and classical music to the brass sound of the Balkans and the melodies of the Mediterranean, and from the uplifting afro-brazilian rhythms to the gypsy paths of jazz manouche, to confirm that different cultures can indeed co-exist.
Workshops, lectures and parallel activities that involve everyone in the process of music creation will be offered for free to visitors of any age. For the first time, the festival will also include documentary screenings on Cypriot music tradition. The screenings will be followed by Cypriot traditional music performances.
Tickets cost €15 (one day) / €20 (two days). For more information call 22377748.
