New colours

The Pharos Arts Foundation will present a concert by the Takoushis-Karapatakis Project on Saturday at the Shoe Factory in Nicosia at 8.30pm.

Pianist Marios Takoushis and bassist Gabriel Karapatakis, in collaboration with the virtuoso lyricist from Crete Zacharias Spyridakis, are returning to The Shoe

Factory after having recorded their third album Colours of Another Sky there last December to launch their album.

Colours of Another Sky aspires to expand the musicians’ lyricism and unfold their expression into new areas of interaction. While their music is developed based on the fundamentals of jazz improvisation and individual self-expression, their original ideas and compositions are inspired by the Mediterranean music tradition, and consequently, new dynamics are formed by the co-existence of the piano, the fretless bass and the lyra.

Takoushis and Karapatakis have established a longstanding music relationship, which has given rise to the creative and innovative Takoushis-Karapatakis Project.

In 2008, the two musicians formed the Takoushis/Karapatakis Quartet, and in 2010 they released their first album, Sympnoia. In May 2012, they participated in the 12th European Jazz Festival in Athens, and in July 2012, they released their second album, Seven Miles East.

They have given concerts and performed in numerous festivals in Cyprus and abroad.

The Pharos Foundation presents a concert by the musicians. June 20. The Shoe Factory, Nicosia. 8.30pm. €15/10. Tel: 22-663871
