Awakening: with the jazz trio Junkey Moneywise

After two years of being active and playing shows at Jazz festivals, venues and music schools, Junkey Moneywise, a progressive/modern jazz trio from Nicosia, presents a series of shows named "Awakening", in most major cities of the island in March. "Awakening" is the musical result of this “two year” journey and it is entirely made up of original compositions of the band, planned to be recorded in 2019.

The live performances of the trio have received major critical acclaim, mostly due to the highly energetic style of their members' playing, with polyrhythmic and complex passages leading to more atmospheric, downtempo parts, combining the European Jazz influence with neo-soul, latin jazz and even Eastern Music in their compositions.

Vasilis Vourvopoulos - Piano / Keyboards
Marinos Kassinos - Bass
Markos Ioannou - Drums
