The music collective, born in the spring of 2022 in Nicosia’s buffer zone, comprises of eight artists and musicians from Cyprus’ two largest cultural communities. Brought together by Home of Cooperation and the “United by Sound” program’s creative director Lefteris Moumtzis, the collective serves as a medium of musical self-discovery and experimentation, drawing from each member’s own musical path and career.
Island Seeds bring their eagerly awaited debut album “Beginnings” to the Nicosia International Festival, on Wednesday 29th November, at the Nicosia Municipal Theatre, at 20:30. “Beginnings” constitutes a musical journey that started with their first single “Stray Cat”, a humorous take on the adventures of a stray cat in Nicosia’s buffer zone, incorporating names, streets, and buildings from the band’s birthplace. Quintessentially Cypriot and yet effortlessly outward looking, “Stray Cat”, and the entire album, constitutes a hopeful personal outlook melodically dovetailing humor with irony.
Rooted in soul-sprinkled melodies, psychedelic driven grooves and esoteric lyrics that draw inspiration from the collective’s reality while living in Cyprus, Island Seeds and their “Mediterranean Soul” sound is a fresh perspective in the island’s music scene, which confirms the benefits of creative collaborations.
Nama Dama, a special guest artist for the evening, shall open the evening with a set of her music that incorporates live looping and storytelling.
