This August, Katydata wakes up to the sounds of winds and embarks on new music explorations. The alto saxophones of Thodoris Rellos (Mode Plagal) and Zakari Frantz (of the Souljazz Orchestra) take us to Balkan and African routes, trumpets and clarinets twist through jazz, soul and classical music paths, drums mingle with the winds of a band, a zurna and a davul call for dancing…
Windcraft Music Fest returns for the third time to Katydata for two days of concerts, workshops and other activities. Bands and new collaborations from Cyprus, Greece and Canada with winds as their main ingredient will present their personal music interpretation, blending different traditions and creating new fusion sounds. The worlds of ethnic, jazz, soul, African, classical and traditional music will unite, just to prove once more that different cultures can co-exist.
Along the concerts, free music workshops on various topics that combine learning with fun will invite children and adults to participate in the music creation, while other interactive activities will be taking place involving locals and foreign visitors. Traditional Cypriot winds will be given a special place in the festival: a zurna and a davul will mark the opening of the festival, while a folk musician will demonstrate how to make and play the traditional flute pithkiavli. Interactivity between the locals and the visitors will be encouraged through an exploration activity in the village, that will be organised by the “Youth for Exchange and Understanding”.
