Syriana ‘Ipiros Remixes’ EP released today

Syriana have released a new digital EP, with all profits from the sales going towards helping Syrian refugees.

Ten years have passed since the mesmerizingly haunting and thematic sounds of Syriana’s Road To Damascus was released on Real World Records.

In those ten years the warfare and tragedy that has taken over Syria has affected the futures and histories of the people there, and the instigators of Syriana – Nick ‘Dubulah’ Page and Bernard O’Neill – have looked on helplessly as the civilian districts they had walked peacefully around when recording some of the original album in Damascus have been ravaged. Sadly, they have also learnt of the deaths of musicians they worked with and members of their families.

In response to this and to help the Greek island communities who are dealing directly to help the daily needs of the huge influx of refugees from Syria, the ‘Ipiros Remixes’ EP has been put together with 100% of profits from sales going towards International Rescue: Greece and all the musicians giving their work free of charge.

‘Ipiros’, was recorded for the original album but only previously released as a remix on the vinyl A Life in Film.

Ipiros Remixes tracklisting:
Ipiros (Kithara Remix)
Ipiros (Somo Arco Iris Remix)
