The first whole page article in Greek was published by Phileleftheros, the oldest daily newspaper in Cyprus and the largest by circulation. 

The second interview in English appeared in the Cyprus Mail. Both interviews were concerning the Creative Europe project “Interfaces”, an international, interdisciplinary project focused on creating new models and practices for audience development in contemporary music in Europe, which was awarded over two million dollars in funding by the European Union.  The articles can be found here:
