Jazz Concerts in Nicosia 

By Margaret Sheard

We have received information about a series of jazz concerts to be held at the Bedesten in Lefkoşa and although some have already been held there are still many more which may appeal to music lovers.

All of the concerts were arranged to raise funds to buy a grand piano for the Naci Talat Foundation in Nicosia.   The majority of the guest artists come to Cyprus with a spirit of solidarity and do not ask for any payment.  The Festival brings together many musicians of different cultures from different countries.

We hope to bring more information about each concert well in advance but in the meantime here is a list of the dates and artists who will be performing at The Bedesten.  All of the concerts start at 9pm and the entrance fee is 20TL with the exception of Aydin Esen on 30th October which is 30TL.
