Limassol: filled with music

By Maria Gregoriou

The month may be crawling to its end but that doesn’t mean the music will be dying down any time soon; there are many vibes to be heard around the city of Limassol.

Tomorrow the Jazz Trio, along with George Morfitis on the piano, will be back at the Library Cafe Bar for another Wednesday meeting of jazz sounds and good atmosphere.

The trio, Irenaeos Koulouras on double bass, Ermis Michael on guitar and Stelios Xydias on drums, blend together modern, traditional, Mediterranean and ethnic jazz.

This mixture of sounds has become the band’s trademark. Get ready to hear what they are all about while listening to some carefully picked standards as well as their own compositions.

If you can’t make it tomorrow, they will be back next Wednesday to jazz things up once again.

Moving onto Thursday, Dolce Club will host a charity fashion show along with performances by a number of singers and groups.

The event, organised by Refan Parfumerie and Cosmetigue, will give everyone who loves fashion the chance to see what designers Michalis Lazos, Pavlina Nicolaou and Kristo Avraam have been sketching recently.

Music will be provided by the Greek three-member band Vegas. The band has been releasing hit after hit since 2009, with their hip-hop, funk and soul sounds reaching levels that no other Greek band has done before. Their most successful single, Pio Psila (Higher) managed to stay at the number one spot of most played songs on the radio for two months in Greece and the song’s video clip has been said to be one of the best Greek video clips of all time.

Also taking to the stage will be Greek singer Apostolia Zoi. Zoi tumbled into fame by accident as while at a night club in Thessaloniki one night she was given the microphone by the singer on stage to sing along. The owner of the club liked her voice and hired her to sing there. This lucky break took her to the music scene in Athens in 2003 and since then the singer has released four studio albums with much success.

Another band to get the charity event pumping will be King, a pop, dance and R&B band that has been keeping the Greek music scene fresh since 2012 when Yiannis Roussounelos and Antonella Cuellar released their first single, Gia Mia Fora (For Once). Next came their international single Follow the Night.

These are only a few of the performances set for the night. Music will also be provided by Greek singers Georgia Vrana, Antonia Stylianou and more.

Going from jazz to Greek hip-hop and popular sounds to something a bit more rock, on Friday you can be sure that the Tepee Rock Bar will get that rock and roll side of you playing that air guitar of yours.

First up will be the all girl band Scarlett Echoes performing covers of popular and eclectic songs.

After the girls have rocked the first half of the night, the metal/punk band Infected Syren will perform their mix of metal, punk and rock while introducing us all to some songs from their upcoming album.

Louis Syrimis on the guitar, Constantinos Syrimis on the drums and guitar and Marinos Kassinos on the bass will be giving the stage a bit of attitude and the crowd a taste of their lyrics, which may be described as ‘in your face.’

Enjoy the Cypriot/UK band and may they lead you into the early hours of Saturday with a bit of an edge.
