Old friends make the best jazz

Jazz is on the up and up right now all over the island, but Limassol will take the lead in this music frenzy on Wednesday when saxophonist and clarinettist Giorgos Krasidis and double bassist Irenaeos Koulouras will take to the Bistrot 55 stage.

These two influential jazz instrumentalists have performed together countless times in Cyprus, Europe and America. They studied together in America in the 1990s at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where they began their collaboration. Things haven’t changed much some 20-years down the line – other than musical experience – as the two still continue to work together and with world-renowned musicians.

Irenaeos Koulouras and Giorgos Krasidis are considered to be among the pioneers and most important soloists and educators of jazz music on the island, so if you are a jazz fan and haven’t had the pleasure yet, prepare to be musically amazed.

Jazz Set
Music by Giorgos Krasidis and Irenaeos Koulouras. August 9. Bistrot 55, 55 Eleftherias Street, Limassol. 9pm. Tel: 25-212100
