Future Work[edit]

This section is designed to discuss the future work of the article.


We should seek to extend the Culture section to include a new subsection regarding the traditional clothing worn in Cyprus, given that there was a distinctive dress amongst men and women, such as the Vraka. Indeed, these are no longer worn except for dance performances and celebrations of Cyprus' history, but I think it's worth including if possible. This new section may be titled as 'Folk Costume' to relate to the following article: Folk costume.

Illegible text[edit]

For the image of Cyprus's administrative divisions, part of the text for the Famagusta district is obscured by a white-text-on-white-background issue. I suggest changing the text to blue like was done with the Kyrenia and Larnaca districts in the same image.

Semi-protected edit request on 27 May 2017[edit]

This article is not linked to the German version. The German version instead is wrongly linked to the English article "Ile de Chypre" 87.152.206.119 (talk) 08:20, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. As currently written, your request is unclear. Both this article and the article on German Wikipedia appear to be linked to each other correctly. As far as I can see, the English Wikipedia article Ile de Chypre, which is about a horse, doesn't appear as a link in the German Wikipedia article at all—but even if it does, that would need to be solved at German Wikipedia, not here.

The traditional folk music of Cyprus has several common elements with Greek, Turkish, and Arabic music including Greco-Turkish dances such as the sousta, syrtos, zeibekikos, tatsia, and karsilamas as well as the Middle Eastern-inspired tsifteteli and arapies. There is also a form of musical poetry known as chattista which is often performed at traditional feasts and celebrations. The instruments commonly associated with Cyprus folk music are the bouzouki, oud ("outi"), violin ("fkiolin"), lute ("laouto"), accordion, Cyprus flute ("pithkiavlin") and percussion (including the "toumperleki"). Composers associated with traditional Cypriot music include Evagoras Karageorgis, Marios Tokas, Andreas G Orphanides, Solon Michaelides and Savvas Salides. Among musicians is also the acclaimed pianist Cyprien Katsaris and composer and artistic director of the European Capital of Culture initiative Marios Joannou Elia. A.g.o.
