Our regular MoviesAndTV columnist for The Leipzig Glocal, a Leipzig lover, today shares with us what he has discovered over the years about what has historically and culturally made our city a sort of "crossroads of Europe," writing that "living here, you really feel the change from a provincial to not only a pan-European city, as in the past, but one with an international flavour and a beat in the streets."

Full disclosure: I became friends with these guys before I knew the full extent of their musical talent. When I first arrived in Leipzig, I knew no one beyond my study circle, so I very quickly made sure to go to an Internations meeting to diversify my social life. I met many interesting people and made a few close friends through such expat group. I also got to share memorable moments of laughter, drinks and talks with the guys from The Cyans. Then I went to one of their concerts in Leipzig, and was sold on their alternative rock.

More on the band (self-description): “The Cyans is an independent international power trio from Leipzig/Germany that plays original music apparently closest to alternative rock, based on songs written by Zomb Menon. The band plays concerts regularly in the Leipzig area.”
