NUMBER FIVE IN THE LONDA HOTEL’S BUZZING JAZZYBRUNCH SERIES GIVES CAPRICE GUESTS AN ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT FEEL AS VIRTUOSO TALENT ALEXANDRE GAGATSIS AND HIS JAZZ VIBE QUARTET PROVIDE THE PERFECT MELODIES FOR IOANNA TROULIDOU’S SENSUAL VOCALS
The Londa Jazz Series, the hugely successful musical programme of jazzy brunches set in the chic ambience of the hotel’s award-winning Caprice restaurant, is fast establishing the island’s only contemporary boutique property as a uniquely innovative musical venue.
Now in its fifth month, JazzyBrunch no. 5 will be on Sunday June 5. This time the Caprice will play host to the virtuoso talent of Alexandre Gagatsis and his Jazz Vibe Quartet whilst presenting Ioanna Troulidou’s sensual vocals on the microphone. And of course, accompanying the vibrant sounds will be the delicious Jazzybrunch buffet lunch served from 1.00pm – 3.30pm at just €35.00 per person.
Demonstrating a unique musical blend of jazz through harmonic sounds and styles, Alexandre Gagatsis is sure to delight guests with his unusual rhythmic interpretations of the American Songbook. His Jazz Vibe Quartet will feature Marios Toumbas on Piano, Irenaeos Koullouras on Contrabass and Ioannis Vafeas on Drums. Regarded as some of the finest jazz musicians in the region and already established as firm favourites of the Londa’s JazzyBrunch series, the afternoon promises to be a winning combination, enhanced by the dulcet tones of Ioanna Troulidou.
For General Manager Jochen Niemann, the Jazz Series has become an extension of the signature style and flair of the uber-cool Londa itself. “The JazzyBrunch afternoons are now an integral part of the unique moments we offer here; it’s fantastic to see our audiences enjoying such quality live jazz and know that the combination of their lunchtime dining experience and ambient setting is leaving them with a taste for more.”
Matthew Steliou, Artistic Director of the Limassol Jazz Festival 2010 and the Londa Jazz Series added “With Alexandre Gagatsis we will be privileged to see a young virtuoso performer at the peak of his talent…definitely worth waiting for.”
The Londa’s unique atmosphere of easy, chill-out chic and the Caprice’s cool Italian styled interior flanked by the tranquil blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, is the perfect backdrop for Alexandre Gagatsis and the Jazz Vibe Quartet. This JazzyBrunch lunchtime buffet will be served between 1.00pm – 3.30pm in the Londa’s Caprice Restaurant on Sunday June 5. At just €35,00 per person, including a delicious lunchtime buffet, the ‘Londa Jazz Series’ is sure to be a sell-out; reserve your table now to avoid disappointment.
