This year`s musical celebration will start on Friday 23th of July at 9.30pm with the ‘Trio Smiles’ accompanied by Polish singer Gabriela Kozyra and flautist Eleonora Rousou. The trio was formed in 2003 by Stelios Papazoglou (Greece) on guitar, Andrea Rodosthenous on bass and Rodos Panayiotou on drums. They will be performing a tribute to the great music of JOYCE (who is one of the great musical treasures of Brazil. Combines Brazilian rhythms, jazz harmonies and intelligent lyrics).

On Saturday 24th of July, the night starts at 9pm with the 'Ofer Ganor Quartet’. One of the greatest Jazz Masters, Ofer Ganor, will be in Cyprus with a star studded lineup featuring some of the finest musicians on the island.

The night continues with more big names! The well known Israeli drummer Asaf Sirkis will perform with his Trio. They have played at many festivals around Europe, and have received rave reviews from magazines and other media. As individual artists they have made many recordings and performed with a great number of musicians.

His Trio consists by Tassos Spiliotopoulos (Greece) on guitar and Yaron Stavi on bass. The concert starts at 11pm.

For next`s week Friday & Saturday we have 4 bands playing!

On Friday 5th of August the night starts with ‘Tat-Nabar’. They were created by Lefteris Moschovias in Cyprus during the summer of 2000, and their goal is to break away from the usual musical trends, by utilizing anything but the usual musical instruments, with the source of their inspiration originating from the musical history of Africa. They are hymn singers, percussionists, healers, dancers, troubadours and only use self-made musical instruments from recycled materials.

Later in the night we present a band with a superb lineup. The 'Kafeney Houseband’ by Alkis Agathokleous on nei, Savvas Houvartas on guitar, George Koulas on drums &Andrea Rodosthenous on the bass. The aim of the band is musical communication and band improvisation using traditional and modern music together with original compositions. Their music elements contain explosive changes of motion thru a specific sound color and expressive freedom. The quartet is performing regularly at “Kafeney” in Limassol and soon are going to record their first album with original compositions. Joining them as a special guest at the festival will be vocalist Vicky Anastasiou who will enrich the quartet`s sound.

Saturday 6th of August at night starts with a band that Stelios Xydias is introducing to our festival called ‘Quarteto Nuevo’. Consisting of Mauricio Gomez- sax (Spain), Isaac Martin- guitar (Spain), Andrea Rodosthenous – bass and Stelios himself on drums. All the members of the band attended Rotterdam Conservatorium of Music in the Netherlands where they met. The music they play is mostly their original plus music from the traditional and modern jazz repertoire.

The 12th PJFestival will end with one of the most famous artists worldwide - saxophonist Tony Lakatos. He has performed as a saxophone soloist in numerous jazz/pop/rock recordings and concerts. Tony has played the saxophone on 350 LP/CD recordings as a leader or as a sideman. He will be joining the ‘Charis Ioannou Quartet’.
