Fones

/

about

Composer and Bassist Dave Manington and Singer- Songwriter Lara Eidi are
delighted to release their second collaboration ( Look To The Horizon was met with rave reviews ), a real fusion of musical tapestries : “ Fones ”. Their new offering is a real meeting of Greek, Maqam and UK sounds with beautiful words taken from the poem “ Fones ”, in its original Greek by celebrated Greek-Egyptian poet Constantine P. Cavafys.
A powerful brooding bassline underpinned by dynamic drums from master percussionist Vasilis Sarakis and nostalgic guitars. Eidi's ethereal vocals and intricate harmonies soar over the top beautifully, the lyrics from Cavafy's Fones (Voices). The song was completed by fellow friend and multi- disciplinary artist Geoffa Fells, who created art as an embodied response to the music.
