Today on Ecléctico you're listening to an edgy, percussion and guitar-driven song by Antonis Antoniou, a musician and singer from Nicosia, Cyprus. You'll go deeper with an excerpt from a review by Maria Lord on Songlines.

"Livanin" by Antonis Antoniou

Go deeper.
This was always going to be interesting, Cypriot composer and performer Antonis Antoniou is well-known from the amazing groups Trio Tekke and Monsieur Doumani, but here he breaks out on his own, bringing with him many of the eclectic and inventive approaches to music-making that characterised his earlier collaborations. To me it feels as though there is an undercurrent of anger coursing through the album, not only from the lyrics, which reference the division running through his home town of Nicosia, but also in the sound-world that is evoked.
