Sydney’s Cypriot community and culture gets showcased on national television

·

Over 40 members of the Cyprus Community of New South Wales turned up to The Cyprus Club in Stanmore this morning to appear in a special segment with TV presenter Sam Mac on Channel 7’s Sunrise program.

The segment is an attempt by Sunrise to showcase different community and ethnic clubs across Australia.

This morning’s segment featured six live TV broadcasts where Sydney’s Cypriot community were able to mingle with Sam Mac and perform traditional Cypriot dances with music by Tassos Bouzouki.

There was also a small fashion show by up-and-coming designer Katia from Ilio Nemea, as well as the serving of a traditional Cypriot breakfast which included fresh tomatoes, olive bread and of course, halloumi.

Kay Pavlou even sat down with Sam Mac to forecast his future after he drank a traditional Greek coffee.

“It was a very successful event,” President of the Cyprus Community of NSW, Andrew Costa, told The Greek Herald.

“We were very happy to see the Cyprus community and culture showcased and promoted on such a large, national platform.”
