Cypriot band ‘The Zilla Project’ rock Geneva (PICTURES)

Following their successful tour of Greece last month, popular Cypriot blues-rockers “The Zilla Project” have just returned from Geneva where they performed four times including a blistering show at the prestigious Palais Des Nations for the UN’s end-of-year staff party.

Under the auspices of the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture, The Zilla Project travelled as a six-piece band with two backing vocalists – Keti Tanou and Nicole Ardanitou – proudly showcasing to Swiss audiences for the first time original songs from their debut album “This One’s for The President” as well as electrified blues and rock n roll covers.

The performances took the band across four varied music circles of Geneva, from the alternative underground cultural centre “L’Usine” (Urgence Disk) to British-frequented “The Clubhouse Pub”, before culminating at the prestigious “Palais Des Nations” in front of 800 enthusiastic UN staff members. The tour finally ended with a lively performance at upmarket “Moulin Rouge Club”.

Emmanuel Vourakis, frontman of The Zilla Project said, “A wonderful experience for the band which also put us in touch with well-connected people in this musically-active country. It was an honour to represent Cyprus on this tour and we thank everyone for their tremendous support.”

The next show by The Zilla Project is this Thursday at Savino Live in Larnaca, performing one last time before taking a well-deserved break following two international tours! The performance begins at 22:00.
