The Cypriot Fiddler is an attempt to trace the life stories of a dying class of traditional musicians on both sides of the Cypriot divide. The documentary, released in 2016, was entirely funded by members of the public through an online crowd-sourcing campaign.

Dr Nicoletta Demetriou is Research Fellow in Ethnomusicology and Life Writing, and Tutor in Narrative Non-Fiction on the MSt in Creative Writing. She has a PhD in Ethnomusicology from SOAS, University of London, and an MA in Life Writing from the University of East Anglia. Prior to joining Wolfson (in 2012), Dr Demetriou was the Alistair Horne Visiting Fellow at St. Antony’s College (2011-12).
