In Paphos, one cultural venue is making sure that jazz music keeps on sounding with a lengthy series of jazz evenings by acclaimed local musicians. Performing for the first time at the Technopolis 20 Garden on July 23, the Aris Constantinou Quartet will present pieces from the classic American compositions and the bebop era, orchestrated by the leader of the band.
The ensemble consists of Dimitris Miaris on piano, Costas Halloumas on double bass, Marios Spyrou on drums and rising guitarist Aris Constantinou. Their performance is just one of many that will take place at Technopolis 20 this summer. Come August the Kyprothen Trio will present their music in the garden. The trio consists of Pantelis Constantinou (electric bass), Dimitris Terpizis (drums) and Moses Joseph (keyboards and piano) playing a fusion of contemporary jazz music with traditional elements of Greek and Cypriot music on August 6.
Then, towards the end of August, on Friday 20, Sarah Fenwick will charm audiences with a programme titled Blue Skies. Her performance will be an evening of optimistic jazz tunes to inspire soul and heart, and she will be joined on stage by Costas Challoumas on double bass and Orestis Miaris on guitar. More melodious events are scheduled for August and September and our fingers are crossed that they all go ahead as planned!
