Lefkosia Loop Festival 2017

Cyprus : Lefkosia Loop Festival 2017

Lefkosia Loop Festival is celebrating its sixth birthday this year and for the first time it's taking place in the spring time, in two different, venues for four days, presenting artists from Cyprus, Greece and England. Τhe cosy space of Prozak Coffee Shop will host three acts on 1st, 2nd and 3rd of March, with free entry, while the Satirikon Theatre Basement will host the main day of the festival with five acts, on the 4th of March.
Stylistically, the artists vary from electronic music, hip hop, post-rock and beatbox, with emphasis on improvisation. In this year's edition of Lefkosia Loop Festival we will be exposed to: the frantic and distorted musical world of Larry Gus (who had everyone talking about his set at Fengaros 2016), the brand new project by the colorful sound machine that is Βunty, the cinematic ambience and drony melodies of Sugar Factory, the sweet psychedelia of ELY, the unique violin and vocal sounds of Fotis Siotas (Sancho 003), the improvisational set of Emiddio Vasquez using a tape machine, the synthezisers and drum machines of Spivak and the live recording and processing of the sounds of Kalvaris by ΤROMPKTN!

The festival will also host for the first time, the two hour workshop "Live Looping & FX" by master-looper and musician Fotis Siotas. The workshop addresss musicians interested in the live-looping techinque, as well as performers who want to broaden their knowledge. The workshop will take place at the Ethnikon Odeon Kiprou concert hall in Ayios Dometios on Thursday March 2nd at 17:00, with free entry. It's a unique opportunity for the public to watch one of the most experienced and impressive users of live-looping!
