Roland Eyerich is from Koblenz in Germany and was an officer at the Federal Ministry of Defence. He has been visiting the TRNC with his wife for a number of years to stay at their home in Lapta now.

Since 1st of January 2017 there is a the radio now on Bayrak International in the German language presented by Roland Eyerich every Sunday evening from 10pm to 11pm called the “Blues & Rock Show with Roland”. It`s an international Radio Show.
Since July 2020 the show is also on Hoex Radio , The Dutch Rock Station . On Monday between 21:00 and 22:00 CET and on Saturday between 23:00 and 00:00 CET !
One of Roland’s passions is music through which he says “it`s not only a show for German people as my intention is to bring people together without regard of nationality, colour, religion or language. Music is one of the instruments for making people happy and peaceful. The Radioshow is not enough so he organises Bands and Musicians for the premier live venue in North Cyprus called „The Soulist Coffee & Music House“ in Alsancak/Karavas.
Roland also founded a new project called „Friends Across Borders (FAB)“ – now a 3-days Festival. The Moto/Theme is „Music and Cancer have no boundaries“. He build the Team with the owner of The Soulist: Alper Cengiz. Musicans from both sides of Cyprus coming together on one stage in North Cyprus.
The idea behind this festival is to promote above all young artists and to further the “European concept” by overcoming mental borders. Be free of prejudices and characterised by mutual respect without fear. 2nd time this FAB-Festival was on air from 27th to 29th of September at @The Soulist – Coffee & Music House.
