Friday August 10
“Jazz the 3 of us”
Technopolis 20 Cultural Center
Time: 8.30 p.m.

‘Jazz the 3 of us’ is a newly-formed jazz trio that will perform for the first time at Technopolis 20 in Paphos, on Friday, 10th of August 2018, at 8:30pm. The band features the deep friendship between the three musicians, Loukas Louka on the keys, Stefanos Pontos on the bass and guitar, and Philipp Psillides on the drums. They have been active in the Cypriot jazz scene during the last 10 years and have had many performances as members of various other jazz ensembles in various music scenes around Cyprus, such as the well-known Sarah's Jazz Club in Nicosia.

Their repertoire includes well-known Jazz standards, mainly in swing and bossa, but also lesser known tracks in Jazz Rock, Latin and Funk styles. A main characteristic of this trio, in addition to the well-known experimentation with melody and rhythm in jazz improvisation, is also experimentation with different combinations of instrument and sound on keys, such as the combination of the organ, the guitar and the drums without the bass.

Entrance: 10 euro
