Jaffa Road, the award-winning band from Canada that performs a fusion of Middle Eastern, European, Jewish and Indian music, will appear live at the Pico Union Project, 1153 Valencia Street, LA 90015, on Thursday evening, April 7, 2016.
The concert is presented by The Markaz (“The Center”) in its world music series. Tickets are $28 general admission, $18 members, students and seniors with I.D. & groups (10 or more).
Named World MUSIC GROUP OF THE YEAR at the 2013 CANADIAN FOLK MUSIC AWARDS and nominated for TWO JUNO AWARDS (2010, 2013) Jaffa Road is a highly acclaimed Toronto-based world music group made up of some of Canada’s most exciting and innovative interpreters of inter-cultural music.
Their music creates a unique sonic landscape that draws organically from the worlds of Jewish music, Arabic and Indian music, modern jazz, electronica, rock, pop, and dub.
Jaffa Road’s appearance is made possible in part by the generous support of the Music Touring Program at the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to support the Arts in Canada.
“Jaffa Road’s performance for a packed hall was easily one of my favourite moments of the festival. This group of fantastic musicians has an uncanny ability to bring an audience to the edge of their seats one moment, and then get them on their feet dancing the next.” —Chris Dearlove, National Arts Centre’s Ontario Scene Festival
“Their eclectic mix has a combination of cultural elements that is a virtual peace plan for the Middle East – their essence should be distilled and sent to long feuding lands.....Highly recommended!” —Larry Rossignol, The Distillery Jazz Festival
“Jaffa Road at Blue Skies Music Festival was beyond magical...” —Julia Phillips, Blue Skies Music Festival
