CICCADA - A CHILD IN THE MIRROR


Ciccada is a progressive folk rock band from Athens -Greece.
It was formed in April 2005 by flutist Nicolas Nikolopoulos and guitar player George Mouhos.
Very soon, female singer Evangelia Kozoni joined the duo and this is the core of the band until today. The line-up also includes a bass, cello, drums, clarinet. several organs, played by trully good musicians. "A Child in The Mirror", their debut album, was released in 2010 on CD on the Italian Fading Records label and became immediately a success. The first 1000 pieces pressing was sold out in just a few weeks and there is also a Japanese CD pressing available. One of their new songs has been chosen to be included in a forthcoming MUSEA compilation, containing the best progressive contemporary European groups. A Child In the Mirror was voted 8th best progressive album worldwide for 2010 at progarchives.com. Distinctions well deserved by this progressive rock album containing original songs, with breathtaking female vocals and great harmonies by a group of excellent musicians.

The music of CICCADA  is a mix of rock, jazz, folk and Western European legacy from the middle-ages to 20th century.

It is based on strong melodic lines and is mainly influenced  by  some fine  progressive bands and artists of the `70`s like Alan Stivell, Spirogyra, Gentle Giant, Jethro Tull, Renaissance, Strawbs, Curved Air , Hatfield & the North and classical innovators Béla Bartók & I.Stravinsky.

The group  was formed in April 2005 by flutist Nicolas Nikolopoulos (who plays also the keyboards) and fellow guitar player Yorgos Mouchos.  A little after, singer Evangelia Kozoni  joined the duo and this is the core of the band until today. After a series of constantly  changing line-ups (including a male singer, bass, cello, clarinet, trumpet, piano & drums players) and several gigs in Athens hometown,  the act is consolidated with the addition of bass player Omiros Komninos in 2009 and with this formation, they enter the studio during July of the same year to record their music.. Amongst many guest participations there are special contributions from members of famous Italian bands YUGEN (P.BOTTA, P.CAVEDON,V.CIPOLLONE, M.SIGNO') and DFA (A. DE GRANDIS).
