Ioannis Vafeas





     Drummer Ioannis Vafeas was born in Limassol, Cyprus. In 1994 he earned a Bachelor degree from Berklee College and in 1997 a Master’s degree from the Boston Conservatory. Ever since, he has been an active musician performing and teaching music. Ioannis has been a member of many different bands including Michael Messios Symmetry band, The Petsteppers, The Cyprus Big Band and Café Balkan. Due to these collaboration Ioannis have traveled through Europe and the Middle East. He shared the stage along with Gilad Atzmon, Tony Lakatos and Chris Byars to name a few. Last two years Ioannis formed his own band The Ioannis Vafeas Project and performed in different venues through the island. The idea behind this is to be able to play music from the classical jazz repertoire as well as more contemporary music. Thus, the band members and the instrumentation will change from time to time.
