Protest Songs

September 14, 2021 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

PROTEST SONGS / CYPRUS
Research – Production supervisor: Robert Camassa
Production – Artistic direction: Christos Philippou

Protest songs that inspired and sound-tracked social change around the world. 17 songs by great artists who spoke out against racism, war, oppressive regimes; songs supporting human rights, women’s rights, and sexual diversity. With Stelios Joakem, Nama Dama, Friederica Tombazou, Arda and the vocal ensemble Convocanti.

Protest songs –as any other form of art with a social and political dimension– affect our way of thinking and perspective, and capture the era in which they were conceived. Inspired composers left behind links in a chain of songs that signaled social change. Songs that convey, even after decades, universal messages.
