Domas Aleksa is one of the best bass players in Lithuania and Baltic States. From the tender age of 6 he started playing classical cello, but after 7 years he became more interested in mastering the guitar. He started playing the bass while still in music school, and after graduating in classical cello he enrolled in Music College to study bass further. Domas has toured internationally with many popular acts and musicians. His performance credits and tour collaborations include American blues star Otis Taylor and jazz singer Philip Hamilton to name but a few. At Sony Jazz Stage he played with world famous American drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, while at the Klaipeda Jazz Festival he performed with the Tunisian lute and guitar prodigy Nabil Khemir.
Domas has collaborated with various bands and performed in numerous prestigious international jazz festivals, including London, Ottawa, Tokyo, Moscow, Cairo, Acacia (Ethiopia), Izmir (Turkey), Bratislava, JazzKaar, Europalia (Belgium), and many more. Domas has supported various pop bands and international superstars such as Black Eyed Peas, Simply Red, Macy Gray and Avril Lavigne. With his own band, d’Orange, he has performed alongside Incognito, Poogie Bell Band, Roy Ayers Band, and others.
Domas has recorded more than 30 studio albums as a session musician for other artists in various styles of music, and even with the demands of a busy touring and recording schedule, he still finds time to continue working on his own compositions and is currently finishing his second studio album, which will be released in March, 2015.
Leonid Nesterov began his music career in Latvia and has lived in Limassol since 2010; he plays with different musicians around Cyprus sharing his passion for jazz performing with various musicians from Baltic States, Germany, Cyprus, Russia and Israel.
Andreas Stephanou is one of the best drummers in Cyprus. From the age of 9 he started playing percussions and performing live with various musical groups in band competitions, concerts and recordings. After his service in the military philharmonic orchestra he continues studying percussions with George Koulas and in 2007 was accepted at the Rotterdam Conservatoire in Holland for studies in Latin Jazz. Parallel to his studies he presented and took part in various projects like The Hague Festival Latin Fanatics with musicians from all over the globe, with Nelson Faria, Anna Ellis de Jong and others. He lives and is musically active in Limassol, Cyprus, playing at musical venues all over the island.
The Caprice’s cool Italian styled interior, flanked by the tranquil blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, is the perfect backdrop for the easy melodies of vibrant jazz sounds brilliantly performed by talented musicians.
