androula, Mohama Tajalof

The Island Club, in collaboration with the Lemesos International Documentary Festival, presents Spirits of the Rainforest, an audiovisual programme comprising live performances by androula and Mohama Tajalof. The programme is presented in the context of the exhibition Spirits of the Rainforest: A Photographic Innovation.

Spirits of the Rainforest features original musical compositions by androula (Androula Kafa) and Mohama Tajalof (Veronica Georgiou), performed live in dialogue with the archive of Dimas Efthyvoulos (1924-2011), a Cypriot photographer who lived in the Peruvian Amazon between 1979 and 1989, seeking to capture “the spirits of the jungle”. The compositions will draw on Efthyvoulos’ archive of audio tapes (which includes recordings from shamanic rituals and the Amazonian jungle, among others) as well as poetic and philosophical writings from his archive of texts.
