Multi-award winning group Monsieur Doumani, was formed in 2011 in Nicosia, Cyprus. Coming from different musical backgrounds, but influenced by the Cypriot tradition at various levels Monsieur Doumani compose Cypriot songs that draw inspiration from contemporary Cypriot society as well as from the shaky conditions of our era. The original identity of the project was determined by the adaptation of Cypriot traditional pieces, with a special contemporary color in sound and mood, forming a style distinctively their own. This distinct style has made the trio a critic’s favourite and they were awarded as ‘Best Group’ in Songlines Music Awards 2019.
Likewise, their live appearances in festivals and venues worldwide (WOMAD, Sziget, Rudolstadt, FMM Sines, Konzerthaus Vienna, Paradiso, etc) have been very well-received by diverse audiences. Last year they played a beautiful show at the Spectacle Festival, presented by ALICE, and we’re delighted to bring them back to Copenhagen.
