2nd The Soulist Friends Across Borders (FAB) Festival in aid of Tulips (Help Those with Cancer Association)
In ancient times, Joshua’s trumpets brought down the Walls of Jericho and likewise today’s music can help bring down the wall of prejudice dividing this beautiful island. At least that is the belief driving forward the organisers of FAB (Friends Across Borders) Festival to be held at The Soulist Music and Coffee House, Alsancak (27th-29th September 2019).
The dynamic duo of Alper Cengiz, (iconic Turkish musician and owner of the venue) and Roland Eyerich (German Blues & Rock DJ) share Shakespeare’s dream that ‘music is the food of love’ and that, through love, borders will dissolve.
Music, be it blues, soul, rock, reggae, jazz or classical, is the international language and it is this language which will bring together musicians from both Cypriot communities, in addition to guests from Germany, New Zealand, Ireland and the UK.
Sharing a stage would be a wonderful outcome in itself but in addition the event will raise funds to help the worldwide fight against cancer through the ‘Tulips Association’.
