Dear friends of Paradise Jazz Festival

The 9th PJFestival is coming back to the original venue, at Paradise Place with no big costs, no big sponsorships, just between friends and familiar faces. Back on the small stage with unplugged sound, next to the bar, it is very intimate the way we like it. In order to get as much inspiration as possible, we have moved the dates of the festival to the 25th , 26th and 27th July 2008, to make it easier for students, families and new friends to attend, many of whom have working and studying commitments. Anyway July’s sunsets are as good as September’s! This year`s festival is dedicated to Cypriot Musicians, their projects & their collaborations. It is an invitation to them, recognizing the progress they have made in the last years.

So, we are going to start Friday 25th Julyat 8pm with the Latin Jazz group ‘Trio Smiles’ who are well-known here at Paradise Place, featuring the Portuguese singer ‘Magda Mendes’ who stole the hearts of the crowd with her performancelast year. Together they are going to take us for a trip from the ‘Fado’ of her country to the ‘Latin & Salsa’ sounds of Brazil. Stelios Papazoglou is on guitar, Andreas Rodosthenous is on electric bass and Rodos Panagiotou on drums and percussions. Is a great way to open our Festival with a group which has already won the hearts of the patrons of Paradise Place.

For Saturday the 26th of July again at 8pm we go on withClassic Jazz and a collection of musicians who are pushing the boundaries of Cypriot Jazz music. Who have supported us and have achieved a way of keeping our Jazz music alive for which we sincerely thank them. To be followed by our upcoming devotees of the ‘Jazz trend’, who hopefully will follow in their footsteps to keep, Jazz an ongoing tradition for ‘Paradise Jazz, for many years to come. Irinaeos Koullouras is on acoustic bass, George Koulas is on drums and George Krasides on sax and clarinet. With them will be Elizabeth Simonian and her spectacular voice. Ofer Ganor acoustic guitarist who topped the charts with his magnificent performance, as experienced here four years ago and is great to have him back. Altogether this quintet will make The 9th PJFestival an unforgettable and absorbing experience.

Sunday 27th July commences at 7pm and is dedicated to more experimental forms, with Tat-Tnabar, a powerful percussion group with five talented professional performers from theatrical dance/music scene.
