Three important musicians of the Cyprus Jazz Scene, the bassist Michael Messios, the pianist Christos Yerolatsitis and the drummer Ioannis Vafeas unite forces to form Ioannis Vafeas Trio.
Their aspiration is to add- each one from his artistic point of view-their personality and talent by bringing the sound of the original jazz music.
Vafeas and Messios have a long background together characterized by superb musicianship and creativity. Their common understanding and connection – on and off the stage – enables them to easily interact and bring their enthusiasm to their audience. The young and talented jazz pianist Christos Yerolatsitis who just returned to Cyprus from the Netherlands, completes the trio with his talent and energy.
The three artists have been performing at important festivals and concert halls in their homeland and around the world for many years.
The Trio is expanded to form a quintet on several occasions with the saxophonist Iacovos Parpas and the trumpet player Michalis Michael.
