Curated by The Cyprus Institute and The European Music Archaeology Project (EMAP), this is
an exhibition showing that… “Music is the ‘sound’ evidence of the common roots of European cultures”. Music can reveal facts about ancient civilizations, since it has created a network of relationships and points of contact among us long before we became aware of our common identity in Europe.

The exhibition, which includes multimedia features and interactive installations with the use of 3D technology, allows the visitor to admire and fully experience the astonishing world of the ancient musical instruments and the amazing journey through time and space, beginning from the origins of European musical tradition.

The exhibition, which tours Europe, stops in Pafos this summer. The mosaics of Pafos and the music scenes depicted stemming from musical themes of the Hellenistic and Roman years were the inspiration for the exhibition in Cyprus as part of the Pafos 2017 – European Capital of Culture.

Under the auspices of:
