MONSIEUR DOUMANI

They focus on rearranging Cypriot traditional songs adding their own particular color to the sound and feeling of the songs.

In association with Smaller Rooms, Unity Works proudly brings Monsieur Doumani, nominated for ‘Best Newcomer’ in Songlines Music Awards 2014, to Wakefield.

They were formed in 2011 in Nicosia by Antonis Antoniou (tzouras), Angelos Ionas (guitar) and Demetris Yiasemides (wind instruments). Although each member of Monsieur Doumani comes from a different musical background all three are influenced by Cypriot folklore on various levels.
They focus on rearranging Cypriot traditional songs adding their own particular color to the sound and feeling of the songs. They also compose their own songs in the Cypriot dialect, which are inspired by contemporary Cypriot society, as for example the recent financial crisis that hit the island and the corrupted political system.
