Monsieur Doumani

The members of this trio from Nicosia come from different backgrounds but are all influenced by the traditional music from Cyprus at various levels.

The compositions of Monsieur Doumani are inspired by the contemporary Cypriot society as well as the shaky conditions of our era.

Originally the group adapted traditional Cypriot pieces to a special contemporary color in sound and mood, forming a style distinctively their own.

But now after 10 years, with their new upcoming album, to be released by Glitterbeat in September 2021, they go even one step further, adding a full, raw-edged psychedelic sound to their music. Their music is sometimes reminiscent of vintage Greek styles, other times of 70s Turkish psychpop and psychrock, but always with their own, distinctive flavor.

In those 10 years Monsieur Doumani played successful concerts all over the world, from Womad to Sziget, from Paradiso to Mupa.
