The young trio Monsieur Doumani was nominated in 2014 as Best Newcomer for the Songlines Music Awards. Their album Sikoses also received international praise. And for good reason: this band makes very original arrangements based on Cypriot folk music. They enrich the wonderful traditional songs with modern rhythms and melodies. They are wildly popular on Cyprus, not only for their music, but also for their critical lyrics about corruption and the financial crisis.

★★★★★ Global Sounds
★★★★ The Guardian "Greek folk styles updated with a slice of fun."
Heaven 8+ "De combinatie van driestemmige folkvocalen, tzouras, trombone en gitaar, en dat dan weer elektro-akoestisch gemanipuleerd, is bepaald origineel en geeft een modernistische tint aan wat in basis traditionele Cypriotische muziek is."
