Monsieur Doumani, the chart topping adventurious trio from Nicosia, Cyprus was formed in 2011 by   Antonis Antoniou (tzouras), Angelos Ionas (guitar) and Demetris Yiasemides (wind instruments).

They focus on rearranging Cypriot traditional songs adding their own particular color to the sound and feeling of the songs. They also compose their own songs in the Cypriot dialect, which are inspired by contemporary Cypriot society, as for example the recent financial crisis that hit the island and the corrupted political system.


In March 2015 Monsieur Doumani released their second full-length album, ‘Sikoses’, which was nominated for the prestigious ’Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik 2015‘ and also gained them a nomination in Songlines Music Awards 2016 in two categories: 'Best Group' and 'Europe'.
The album consists mainly of their own compositions, inspired by tradition, but reflecting on contemporary Cypriot  society. Sikoses was awarded ‘Top of the World” in Songlines magazine issue #108 and received outstanding reviews from other media internationally.
Sikoses also reached No.1 in World Music Network's June 2015 chart and No.1 in the November 2015 Transglobal World Music Chart.


A new album has just been recorded and will be released in Spring 2018.
