AS HOSPITALITY SPONSOR TO THE FIRST EVER LIMASSOL JAZZ FESTIVAL 2010, CYPRUS’S UNIQUE AND UBER-COOL BOUTIQUE HOTEL, THE LONDA, GUARANTEES THE CELEBRATIONS GO WITH A SWING
Limassol’s unique and award-winning boutique hotel, the uber-cool Londa, was the perfect choice to partner Limassol’s first ever Jazz Festival 2010 as official hospitality sponsor. With its modern Italian contemporary design interiors and sophisticated urbane style, the Londa delivered the perfect ambience for jazz aficionados during the Festival.
The seven day event featured 5 musical venues in Limassol town with more than 40 artists performing at 13 live musical presentations. Award-winning living jazz legends, double bassist Avishai Cohen and Spanish jazz-guitarist Hernan Romero headlined the bill, and together with an impeccably talented band of jazz musicians and singers, including pianists Thierry Castel and Vahagn Hayrapetyan and local stars Sarah Fenwick, Charis Ioannou, to name a few, the city reverberated with swinging jazz sounds from 15th – 21st November.
The Londa hosted two events: on Saturday 20th November ‘Afternoon Jazz’ in the Caprice bar featured local vocal sensation Sarah Fenwick and her guest pianist who thrilled the audience with mellow jazz standards. On Sunday 21st November the Londa closed the Festival with a show-stopping finale as the Limassol ‘Jazz Festival All Star Band’ played as a mouth-watering Caprice lunch buffet was served. Both performances blended the exquisite flavours of the hotel’s award-winning Caprice bar cuisine with the irresistible, classy atmosphere that only live jazz can create.
For Jochen Niemann, General Manager of the Londa, the Jazz Festival was a resounding success “The response has been terrific. I’m delighted that the Londa has been involved with Limassol’s first ever Jazz Festival and judging by the feedback from our guests it looks as if I will have to provide many more Jazz afternoons and evenings at the hotel.”
