Sounds of Cyprus offers a workshop component in its program where students have the opportunity to learn the history, culture, and civilization of Cyprus through music. The group speaks with students about the instruments regarding their construction, playability, and use in the Cypriot repertory. The group also teaches about the Cypriot dialect of Greek, its history in relation to new modern Greek, and its use in the Cypriot music repertory. Students have the opportunity in workshops to interact with the orchestra members and engage in meaningful cultural dialogue around the music and performance of the traditional Cypriot music. Sounds of Cyprus has also performed and spoken at TEDx in their speaker series.
Sounds of Cyprus is a multicultural and intercultural group that promotes all the sounds of Cyprus. Many songs are performed in both the Greek and Turkish dialects of Cypriot as they have been written.
