Jazz Breakfast at the Soulist – Sunday 13 January 2019
The great William Shakespeare wrote ‘If music be the food of love play-on give me excess of it…’ and it is interesting that those words came to mind during the most recent event at the Soulist Coffee and Music House in Alsancak, where the owner Alper Cengiz, along with Adeleh Mozafari and the team fused Jazz and a wonderful breakfast together to the delight of the sell-out audience.
It was an early start for the Soulist, which has quickly become the premier live music venue in the TRNC, but inspired by the warm and sultry jazz tones of ‘Lady M’ we were taken on a magical journey of music, which was the perfect partner to the tasty food freshly prepared and served by the Soulist team. The music was beautifully matched to the breakfast, which highlighted the ability of this jazz trio who bring together great individual musical mastery wrapped together as ‘Lady M’ with Miray Çakır on Violin and vocals; Ersen Sururi on Piano; and Nikolai Petrovic on Double Bass.
The audience could not help but fall in love with the delightful blend of food and music and enjoyed the very best start to a Sunday morning in Northern Cyprus. The only request from the audience was that they wanted ‘more of the same’ so expect this to become a regular feature at the Soulist.
The second Jazz Breakfast has been arranged at the Soulist and this will be on Sunday 17th February. We look forward to welcoming all our friends for breakfast and music.
