Through her lyrics, she reminds us of humanity and the strength of the soul in dark times. It refers to the Greek Cypriots and the Turkish Cypriots, who lived together and apart, trying to find their own peace in the midst of war”.

The pain of the occupation and the division of our island are issues that touch the heart of every Cypriot, said Mr. Sofoklis.
