With the political changes in Cyprus state of affairs and opening of crossing points in 2003, he begun collaborating and sharing the stage with different bands across the divide. After graduating from Eastern Mediterranean University in February, 2007, Cahit Kutrafalı was accepted to Rotterdam Conservatory Jazz Academy, studying electric bass branch. In 2007-2008, he received Jazz harmony classes from Cypriot saxophone player, Charis Ioannou, with whom he shared the stage with for numerous projects. Meanwhile, he participated in numerous workshops organised by prominent New Yorker Jazz musicians such as Chris Byars and Ari Roland.
