The ‘JACKET’ is a group formed by artists from Slovenia, Belgium, and Cyprus. The quintet will
perform original compositions by each member, in the modern jazz style, presenting their latest published and unpublished work. The group is comprised of Jan Kus (saxophone), Ermis Michail (guitar), Andreas Panteli (piano), Cahit Kutrafali (bass), and Kristijan Krajnčan (drums). The members first crossed paths in the Netherlands
during their studies at the Rotterdam Conservatory. Being based in different cities around the world now, the five musicians reunite once again to explore each other’s work and present their new music onthe Saturday 6th of Augoust 2016.


Το Σάββατο 6 Αυγούστου, ώρα 9.30μμ, θα καλωσορίσουμε τους “JACKET” οι οποίοι είναι μια τριεθνής συνάντηση μουσικών από την Σλοβενία, Βέλγιο και Κύπρο. Το πενταμελής σχήμα θα μας παίξουν αυθεντικές συνθέσεις μέσα στο στυλ του modern jazz, παρουσιάζοντας μας τις τελευταίες τους δουλείες μερικές εκ των οποίων είναι ακυκλοφόρητες.
Το γκρουπ αποτελείται από τους Jan Kus (σαξόφωνο), Ερμής Μιχαήλ (κιθάρα), Αντρέας Παντελή (πιάνο), Cahit Kutrafali (μπάσο) και Kristijan Krajncan (ντραμς).
Τα δημοφιλή μέλη του συγκροτήματος είχαν πρωτοενώσει τους δρόμους τους στην Ολλανδία κατά την διάρκεια των σπουδών τους στο Rotterdam Conservatory. Αν καιτώρα βρίσκονται όλοι σε διαφορετικές πόλεις στον κόσμο, αποφάσισαν να ξανασυναντηθούν και να ξανά ερευνήσουν τις μουσικές αναζητήσεις του καθενός. (Η δύναμη της μουσικής βλέπετε…). Το νέο μουσικό αποτέλεσμα  θα το πρωτοπαρουσιάσουν στο 17th PJFestival.
