This year Euro-Arab Youth Music Centre organised Ethno Cyprus 2016, which was held in Limassol, between July 1st and July 10th 2016.
35 young virtuosos of traditional instruments from European (Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus) and Arab countries (Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon), met to explore their common cultural identity. Using music as a starting point they created a platform for intercultural dialogue that fosters mutual understanding and respect. Cultural activities contribute to economic growth and social cohesion, so Ethno Cyprus aspired to support the creativity and mobility of young musicians, who will become ambassadors of positive changes in their communities.
