Friends Across Borders

For the second time The Soulist – Coffee and Music House is hosting a 3-day Music Festival Friends Across Borders (FAB) from 27th to 29th of September 2019. Musicians from both sides of Cyprus will come together on one stage in aid of Help Those with Cancer Association TULIPS. All proceeds of the charity tickets will be donated to the association. The theme of this festival is “Cancer and Music have no Boundaries“.
High quality Blues, Blues-Rock, Rock, Reggae, Jazz and Classic Live Music will be the main focus throughout the weekend.

Friday 27th the day for Blues-Rock and Rock.
Saturday the 28th with a mixed program of different music genres.
Sunday the 29th Jazz and Classical music.

“Friends Across Borders (FAB)“ was founded by Roland Eyerich (German Blues & Rock DJ from Bayrak International) and musician Alper Cengiz (The Soulist Coffee and Music House).

Roland is also a former social worker. “He is committed to the Ethos of Social Work to overcoming borders and building bridges against fears and breaking down prejudices in the divided Island of Cyprus with music.” (cyprusccene.com)

With the help of his musical competence and his personal commitment, this cross-border and bi-communal project finally has become possible. This year Roland and Musicians from both sides of Cyprus apply with the social project “Friends Across Borders“ for the Stelios Bi-communal Awards 2019. The Stelios Bi-communal Awards have been in operation on the island of Cyprus since 2009. The idea is to encourage bi-communal cooperation between Greek-Cypriots and Turkish-Cypriots in order to promote lasting peace on the island.
