Daily Dsicovery: Buzz’ Ayaz – Arkos (Live at Afrobanana Fest 2023)

Catch the live performance of “Arkos” by Cypriot quartet BuzZ’ Ayaz at Afrobanana Festival 2023 in Lefkara.

Led by Antonis Antoniou, known for his work with Monsieur Doumani and Trio Tekke, this new project merges Eastern Mediterranean psychedelia with forward-looking and far-reaching sounds.

“Arkos” stands out with its fusion of tribal drumming, bass clarinet, and modern synths, reflecting the diverse culture of Nicosia. The song’s lyrics express a longing for liberation and the exhilarating feeling of breaking free from constraints, symbolising a flight towards freedom and the unknown.

Keep an eye open for BuzZ’ Ayaz’s debut album, set to be released in August via Glitterbeat Records, promising a rich exploration of the band’s unique sound. More info HERE
